Rethymno, a beautiful city of approximately 40,000 people, is located in the largest of the Greek islands (8300 km2) and one of the most popular resorts, Crete.

Rich in ancient history, culture and tradition. The variety of landscape and due to its mild climate and its long summers, attracts a lot of visitors year round.

GutsyWriter. I thank you too and I do hope we can keep in touch! It's about time to visit the 'basic' and 'Go back to the beginning', as many of Western traditions we hold dea started in Greece.
