Travel Blogs from Rethymnon
... fear and paranoia did get the walls built and like today assisted in draining resources the city-government- could have used else where. Like widening the streets. We're driving a small VW van but the roads and alleys of Hania are tight. Sometimes people have to move patio furniture to proceed. Before I could park a few blocks from our suite I had to lift two scooters and move them to make a parking space. We're meeting some friends coming from India, ...

Here they do not have a lot of room but they have used it well and each space seems to have used the gardens to enhance the setting. One restaurant was built around a group of lemon trees and another had an old well/fountain running inside. Our spot of choice for the night was Castello, an old stone building ...
