So we decided to make the trip (or should I say voyage) to Rethymnon. Once again, well worth it. If you love visiting those places that make you feel like you’ve gone back in time this is the place for you. We started our trip to Rethymnon by visiting the port lighthouse. This fixture has been up since the 1800’s and it looks magnificent in the early morning sun. The people in this city were so nice too! Apparently we had just missed their annual wine festival but we decided to indulge as if the festival was going on anyways. After a long day of exploring 16th century fixtures, and tasting Cretan wine that I’ve since missed, we decided to stop for Dinner. We took the advice of locals and ate at Cavo D’Oro. The atmosphere was delightful but there were definitely more tourists there than we thought there would be. Oh well, it is the summer so I can’t be too unhappy about that part. Plus, the food made it well worth the stop. We both indulged in a succulent calamari appetizer and a hefty lobster entree that left us stuffed.
All in all I would highly recommend visiting Rethymno if you find yourself close to the Island of Crete.
