Rethymno is not directly connected to the rest of Greece however one can use the airports and ports of the cities of Heraklion and Chania from where there are daily scheduled flights and ferries between Athens and many other major European capitals.
Visit the village of Anogia: The picturesque village of Anogia is located 55 km drive from Rethymno. Its history reaches the end of Centuries as indicated by the Doric expressions used in the local dialect. The people of Anogia helped significantly in the fight against all conquerors. The village was destroyed twice, the first time in 1822 by the Turks and the second in August 15th 1944, by the Germans. The people of Anogia are very different from the other Cretans. They keep tradition alive as far as clothing, food, dialect and social gatherings are concerned. The local costume is very famous here. From Anogia, one should visit mount Psiloritis and Idaion Andron. Do not miss the chance to eat at a local tavern and experience impeccable Cretan hospitality.
