We had a few restful days here after our rather angst -ridden night crossing. Rethymo or Rethymnon is a lovely little place full of tourists and touristy shops, a Venetian harbour and a mix of Turkish and Venetian houses. It even has a couple of minarets. A Venetian fortress on the site of the acropolis over looks the town with great views of the city.
Our slightly crumbling pontoon was a little British enclave (with a token Swedish boat) and we spent three nights with them eating and having extended sundowners
