An audio tour of Rethymno: From Ancient Greece to modern times

Duration

clock160 to 185 minutes

Overview

    This self guided audio tour begins a stone’s throw from the old Venetian harbor and its impressive lighthouse. From there, we’ll enjoy a slow wander through tiny alleyways, filled with Venetian houses. We’ll pass museums where you can have a look inside, if you like. (The early Minoan artifacts that were found nearby are amazing.) We’ll also visit the huge Fortezza with its magical domed mosque and its excellent panoramic views over both the city and the Aegean Sea.

    Along the way, you'll hear about:

    How the city got its name
    The impact of the Ottoman Turks
    The cruel story behind the Four New Martyrs church
    The architect and builder of the Venetian Loggia
    The layout inside the Greek Orthodox Church and its religious traditions
    Why and how Byzantine icons are so special on Crete
    What the memorial posters you see everywhere on the electricity poles and walls mean
