“Fortezza, the Rethymno’s fortress was completed on 1590 and it is the trademark of the city. Built by the Venetians to protect the city from Ottomans’ attacks and pirates’ raids it stands upon the city, on the Palaiokastro hill. Most of the walls and buildings of the fortress are still in good condition and the view from Fortezza is astonishing. Within its walls the visitor will also find the outdoor municipal theatre “Erophili”, where most of the Renaissance Festival’s events take place. ”

“At this huge modern aquarium, you can experience the underwater life of the Mediterranean. A fascinating day out for kids and adults alike, it has 32 vast glass tanks displaying everything from hunter sharks to miniscule seahorses, jellyfish, turtles, lobsters, and octopus, all in beautifully-lit turquoise sea water against a backdrop of rocks, sand, and seaweed. You'll find it at a former American military base in Gournes, 13 kilometers east of Heraklion.”

“The lagoon of Balos is visited by thousands of tourists each summer and it is famous for the turquoise waters and the exotic geological formations that seem to come from another world. It is located 56km northwest of Chania, between the cape Gramvousa and the cape Tigani and the whole area is a protected biotope. It is home to 400 species of plants, 26 of which can only be found in Crete, and 98 species of birds of which 14 are endangered and therefore protected”

“The Venetian Harbour of Rethymnon, next to the modern harbour of the city, with the Egyptian lighthouse is one of the most picturesque areas of the old town. It operated in the Byzantine period (after 961), but flourished during the Venetian period. The Venetians in the 14th century started major projects to facing the problem of siltation, which holds till today.”

“Preveli with its riverside palm-groves is one of the most famous and beloved beaches in Crete. Its name – and that of the broader region – is taken from the historical monastery nearby, dedicated to St. John the Theologian. A walk on the bank or a pedalo up the river itself through the palms and oleanders and into the gorge is a quite unforgettable experience. At the mouth of the gorge, where the river Kourtaliotis ends in a delta, is the exquisite beach of Preveli. It has pale sands and a stony bottom to the crystalline water. It is a unique sandy beach, beautiful, with a small forest of palm trees that make it look exotic.There is small lagoon before the river reaches the sea. So the visitor who chooses this beach for swimming, has the unique opportunity to swim either in the salty waters of the sea or in the lagoon and river! Also a fantastic experience for the visitor is to walk and climb the river. The palm trees on the banks of the river offer rich shade and the soil is smooth and sandy. Sometimes one could believe that it is in an African oasis. Due to this image and the unusual environment, the beach has been a very popular destination for tourists since the 1970s, when many hippies were built and camped here with hay and palm tree huts. Fortunately this little paradise is not very organized. There is food and drink served, below there is a detailed map of how to get to the beach.”
