By the gorgeous old city of Rethymno, set on a dazzling expanse of sand, is the Grecotel LUX.ME White Palace, an elegant, deluxe retreat with an ecological, grounded tone that has long been a jewel in Crete's crown.

  • If on a historical tour in town then it's also worthwhile taking a trip through the ages at the local archaeological museum, which houses a chronological litany of ancient and curious objects dating all the way back to the Neolithic age.
