Rethymnon

— 4 nights
Rethymnon combines the old-fashioned charm of a small town with proximity to long sandy beaches with all the modern conveniences usually found in big tourist resorts.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Monastery of Arkadi and Church of Saint Titus. Change things up with these side-trips from Rethymnon: CRETAquarium (in Gournes), Heraklion (Historical Museum of Crete, Venetian Walls and Tomb of Nikos Kazantzakis, &more) and Kazantzakis Museum (in Myrtia). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at The Palace of Knossos, take a stroll through Rethymnon Old Town, get engrossed in the history at Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno, and stroll the grounds of German Military Cemetery.

For more things to do, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Rethymnon trip itinerary planner.

Vancouver, Canada to Rethymnon is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from Vancouver to Rethymnon due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vancouver in March, expect Rethymnon to be somewhat warmer, temps between 20°C and 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to catch the flight back home.

Great Island
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete offers travelers more than just sun, sea, and sand. Famed for its warm hospitality, outstanding infrastructure, and contrasting landscapes, the island represents one of the world's richest areas in terms of history and culture. Crete burst onto the world scene over 4,000 years ago, when it served as the center of the Minoan civilization, one of Europe's earliest organized societies. Despite the island's wealth of developed beaches, the traces of the mysterious and enchanting Minoan empire remain Crete's top attraction, drawing visitors from all over the world. The island capital Heraklion provides an ideal base for exploring a renowned Minoan palace complex, the site of Europe's oldest city.
