Although the state of journalism and the economy is at a sort of low as a whole for the country of Greece, I don’t want to give you the wrong impression that it isn’t an incredibly beautiful place that has a lot to offer. It is still among one of the more popular tourist destinations, especially for Americans, and for good reason. Rethymnon really was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and would go back in an instant.
Rethymnon Old Town is one of the most popular destinations among tourists and for anyone who hasn’t been there, I strongly recommend making this one of your first stops. The authenticity and vintage feel that you get from the city is amazing and everyone is incredibly friendly, welcoming tourists for much needed local businesses.
The Ice Cream!
If you happen to make it to this amazing place, do not forget to get the sheep’s milk ice cream from the one and only shop down town. It might not sound that appealing to you Americans reading this but let me tell you, do not knock it til you try it because it is to this day one of the most amazing desserts I have ever had. You will never have a richer and creamier tasting ice cream in your life; I promise you.
