ITINERARY

Every Stop a Unique Experience

1st Stop

On the way

We will drive a short distance from the city of Rethymno -or your hotel- to the village of Loutra: a picturesque village located among olive groves. Loutra is characterized by its narrow cobbled streets, bougavilla plants and Venetian buildings. We will have the opportunity to see the fabrika (old oil mill), the medieval fountain, as well as the house of Ilias Spantidakis( aka Luis Tikas, a person of significance to US social history, born and raised in Loutra).
