A seven days trip to lovely Crete! PART TWO
We spent the next two days in Rethymno!
We visited the interesting Military Museum.
Then headed to the Ancient Eleftherna!
Eleftherna was a city founded by the Dorians in the 9th century BC. The archaeological site will be open to visitors in a few months. By special permission we enjoyed a conducted tour to the site as well as the Museum, where all major archaeological findings are exposed.
Archeology is one of my greatest loves and I was impressed by the site and the extremely important findings.
The recently discovered Ancient Necropolis will be one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece in my opinion! I strongly recommend you pay visit once it becomes available to public at first given opportunity!
The day finished with a dinner at Poliou House, where apart from the cafe and the restaurant, a small folklore interesting museum is also open to the visitors!
The next day was devoted to the beautiful Rethymnon, the capital of the homonymous prefecture. Rethymnon is a beautiful city, built by the sea, worthwhile a long stroll ! Right next to the sea there are many restaurants and coffee bars available while the Old City area is definitely worthwhile a visit! Rethymno has a history of 4500 years, with Byzantine and Venetian monuments all around plus one of the most beautiful harbors! I hope my photos and videos will tempt you to pay a visit soon!
The dinner was an offer by the Raki Ba Rakirestaurant where the food served was excellent!
