    A pearl of Venetian architecture and a breathtaking gorge, and “exotic” atmosphere of Preveli beach

    Tour description:

    Like Greece, Crete is associated with holidays, the sea and beaches. How about a combination of an impressive gorge, a river with crystal water flowing straight from the mountains, a picturesque lake surrounded by palm trees and a beach at the exit of the gorge straight to the Libyan Sea? You will see all this when you go with us south of Crete, to the famous Preveli beach.

    Would you like to experience something more than the beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise color of the sea? How about feeling the Venetian Atmosphere? The key to this is to visit a place reminding Venetian times in Crete.

    ​Of course, we are talking about the town of Rethymno. It has been stealing the hearts of our tourists and permanent residents of the island for many years. Its narrow, richly decorated streets, stone houses from the times of the Venetians, wooden bay windows from the times of the Ottoman rule, or the port with a beautifully preserved lighthouse will make you feel the magic of this place. You will feel like you are in Venice.

    ​When arriving in Rethymno, you can see the Venetian fortress from a distance (one of the first and largest fortifications of this type in Crete). While going into the narrow streets, we will see a beautiful old town. There you will be amazed by the monuments.  You will learn that it was here – the island’s cultural life over the last centuries.

    ​You will definitely come back pleased after this trip. You will also feel incredible satisfaction that you can combine “business with pleasure” even while on vacation! We will find time to relax and the famous Greek “siga siga” walking through the narrow streets of Rethymno, but also return with a large “suitcase” of knowledge about the history of Crete, the mentality of the Cretans and their recipe for longevity!!!

    Why is it worth it?

    • you will see the atmospheric Rethymnon - the most beautiful city in Crete
    • you will walk through the palm forest in a truly tropical scenery
    • you will be amazed by the beautiful landscapes along the way (the western part of the island is considered the most green and flowery)
    • you will be accompanied by the highest mountains in Crete, the Psiloritis Mountains, throughout your journey
    • the guide will give you a lot of information about the island
