The port of Rethymnon is connected with Piraeus (Athens port) but also with the port of Souda in Chania Crete. A Venetian wall protects the harbour. Behind the wall you will find the old, traditional town of Rethymnon. Ferry boats connect Rethymnon with the port of Piraeus in Athens daily. The itineraries are very frequent during the summer months. The cost of ferry tickets is not particularly high and varies depending on the demand and the type of the boat you will choose to travel.
