Note, however, that Rethymno is a tourist destination which means that there are plenty of hotels within and around the close vicinity of the city. There are a lot of rooms available, but it would be a good idea to try to make the booking as early as possible. Of course, once you come, you will find many exciting places to visit, from the mythical place of Zeus’ birth in a cave up on mount Psiloritis to the island of Santorini (there are organized one day boat tours from Rethymno).
For your transportation you should know that:
► Ferries run daily from Piraeus (the port of Athens in mainland Greece) to either Chania (65 km from Rethymno) or Heraklio (85 km from Rethymno). Ferry tickets may be acquired through Minoan http://www.minoan.gr/en/crete or
