Cars and Parking

 
  Rethymnon is a modern city, and as such is experiencing the same type of traffic problems as any other bustling commercial centre.  In high season and on market day (Thursday) town is particularly busy with traffic.  Availability of on-street parking spaces is extremely limited at any time of the year.  Furthermore, during the summer the 'old-town' is a pedestrian zone.  It is therefore recommended that visitors to Rethymnon park their cars in one of the municipal car parks; by the municipal park, the marina, the Venetian harbour or near the bus station.  Drivers should also be aware that a one-way system is in operation in central Rethymnon.
