e.city – Rethymno : Tourism & Economy

Cretan life style



22 – 27 October 2012
Tent on Place Kléber, Strasbourg


On Place Kleber, visitors will have the opportunity to visit the commercial-financial sector of “e.city-Rethymno”. There will be a presentation of unique local Cretan products (cereals, oil, wine, herbs, honey etc.) as well as some creations inspired by the Cretan tradition (silver craft, ceramic art amongst others).

The emphasis will be on the promotion of Rethymno as a tourist destination. More specifically, an attempt will be made to move from mass tourism to thematic-alternative (sports, cultural, religious and architectural) tourism, while trying to regain the credibility of the country abroad and creating a new positive climate towards Greece in European citizens.
