Rethymno - Crete
In the heart of Venetian Rethymno city, in the magnificent island of Crete, Olympic Palladium is situated just 400 meters from city’s port and features a key access point of the modern city. Located between two International airports; Chania International Airport “Ioannis Daskalogiannis” is 68 klm away whereas Heraklion Airport “N. Kazantzakis” 81 km.
There is so much to see and experience in Rethymno, there are so many choices for visitors, that they could never lose interest. This region as a whole is rich with ancient history, most notably through the Minoan civilization centered at Kydonia east of Rethymno. Rethymno itself began a period of growth when the Venetian conquerors of the island decided to put an intermediate commercial station between Heraklion and Chania , acquiring its own bishop and nobility in the process. Today’s old town ( palia pol i) is almost entirely built by the Republic of Venice . It is one of the best-preserved old towns in Crete. An experience not to be missed for the whole family!
