Traffic Information

Rethymno is located on the northern coast of Crete, in between the island's two largest cities, Heraklion and Chania. Due to its location in this popular tourist area and close to the two largest airports in Crete, it is well-connected by a highway that runs along the northern coast from east to west. From our branches in Rethymno, it is only a few minutes' drive to the E75 Highway which will take you east to Chania and west to Heraklion. It also connects Rethymno to the many pretty seaside towns and villages along the coast. Plus, it's possible to drive south to inland mountain villages on various smaller roads and highways.

Sixt Tip


Rethymno is the third largest city in Crete, but still retains a small-town beach resort feel. Whether you're looking for a busy, action-packed holiday or a lazy break by the pool, Rethymno offers it all. With a long sandy beach for sunbathing, and a bustling, historic old town, it has something for everyone. The Venetian Harbour is a particular highlight, with its ancient stonework and impressive boats, and it%u2019s a great place to stop for a spot of al fresco dining with fresh seafood and a glass of retsina. It's also close to Heraklion and Chania, both beautiful cities that are ideal for a day trip or weekend break.
