RETHYMNO WILL AIM TO ATTRACT MORE AMERICAN TOURISTS IN 2021
The Municipality of Rethymno has partnered with ASTA (American Society of Travel Advisors) Greece aiming to promote its tourism offerings to the US market and attract more travelers in 2021. According to the municipality, an increasing number of US travelers visit Rethymno for holidays every year. “Our online platform www.rethymno.guide has revealed to that the average American tourist seeks quality accommodation and has an interest in exploring a destination, its local flavors and experiences,” Rethymno Deputy Mayor Pepi Biliraki said during a recent meeting with Leonidas Babanis, president of ASTA Greece. Biliraki underlined that Crete and especially Rethymno, can meet the highest demands [of travelers] by offering experiences related to the environment, nature, sports, history, gastronomy and wine tourism.
“Through our partnership with ASTA Greece and the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), we anticipate immediate and excellent results once tourism opens again,” she added.
