TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Sitia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Sitia is a port town and a municipality in Lasithi. It lies east of Agios Nikolaos and northeast of Ierapetra.
Sitia port is the most important economic and financial hub of the Lasithi region. Sitia town itself is one of the least touristic parts of Crete. Its history goes back to the Venetian occupation and it was later destroyed and reconstructed by the Turks. For this reason, not many historical sites survived the passing of time. However, the region as a whole still provides some traces and monuments of its early times.
In Sitia, you can do the usual things such as hanging around the long beach in the eastern part of the city or visiting the waterfront in the harbour where you can enjoy your coffee and have some lunch or dinner. Alternatively, you can find yourself lost in the alleys of the old town where you can explore some traditional houses with courtyards and Anatolian gardens, visit the castle of Kazarma or the ruins of a Venetian monastery. Additionally, you can visit the Archaeological Museum where you can find one of the permanent exhibitions of folklore objects dating back to the early 20th and 19th centuries. Finally, a visit to the local produce stalls is a must as you can learn about and purchase some of the finest products in the whole of Crete, among others you can find some world-class wine, olive oil and raki spirit.
Sitia in its core is a residential town and tourism there is a by-product of development, which wasn't really sought after. Here you will meet some of the most delightful and hospitable people of Crete, who are doing their best to keep their hometown at its best and they are very proud of Sitia. This solitary region is also home to a number of monasteries like Toplou, archaeological sites, beaches lined up with palms, sparkling bays and mountainous areas that provide excellent opportunities for some fascinating hiking trails.
There is also a number of traditional villages such as Zou, Ziros, Handras and the abandoned Ethia and the surroundings of Karidi, where you can explore some old buildings and archaeological sites. Moreover, Sitia gave birth to one of the quintessential Greek epic writers, his name was Vitsentzos Kornaros. Kornaros was born in 1553 in Trapezounda in Sitia and he was destined to leave his trademark in Greek literature in 1600 when he composed his magnum opus 'Erotokritos' which to this day remains one of the staple literature legacies of Greece.
Sitia is a true gem, off the beaten track and unaffected by the spoils of mass tourism. You should hurry up, since the construction of an airport in Sitia is finished and things might change rapidly.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Rethimno as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Rethymno is located in the north end of the prefecture and in the middle of Crete, built by the sea and is a city with many faces. It combines the conveniences of a large city with the beauty of an old town. Both elements will mesmerize you.
Every visitor's first stop in the city should be Lotzia, a very well-preserved Venetian building from the 16th century that houses the public library and can be found in the old town. Lotzia is a place of great historical interest, as it used to be a forum for noblemen and other prominent figures, where they would congregate in order to discuss matters of public affairs and commerce. Another sight of great interest is the Fortezza in Paleokastro hill. The fortress dates back to the Venetian occupation and visitors are admitted through the central entrance, into an arcade that leads to the interior of the castle.
Despite being the third largest city in the island, Rethymno maintains a unique character that transports visitors back in time. With well-preserved features that date back to the times of the Ottoman Empire and Venetian occupation. Rethymno is very charming and has a very relaxed 'small town' feel, wrapped in the hot Mediterranean sun, it maintains a unique oriental atmosphere similar to the port cities of Maghreb and Anatolia. The city combines Orthodox and Catholic churches, mosques, Venetian mansions, arches and cobble streets, making it one of the most well preserved medieval cities in Greece. The harmony and beauty of Rethymno will evoke feelings of awe and will excite even the most demanding visitors. Definitely a 'no miss' from any traveller's itinerary. The feeling you get from this lovely town will be something memorable. You will travel through time and you will enjoy Crete at its best.
