Overview

This is a landmark travel guide--Greece joins the ranks of outstanding Cadogan country guides, including Italy and France. The acclaimed author, Dana Facaros, is half-Greek and visits annually. Her co-author, Linda Theodorou, lives in the Peloponnese. Together, they share 60 years of Greek travel experience!
Greece is an increasingly popular choice for American visitors; 2.5 million made the journey in 1999 and it is now one of the top 15 destinations in the world for international tourist arrivals. Visitors from the States come for many different sorts of vacations, and the guide offers listings and practical advice to cater to all of them. Whitewater rafting in the Nestos gorge of Eastern Macedonia, exploring the secret mountain villages and Neda gorge in the Peloponnese, touring the archaeological sites and discovering the truth about the dream Oracle of Trophonios--or just relaxing in the fashionable mountain resort of Karpenisi--all are covered by the guide. Whatever travelers are looking for--from an audience with the gods at Olympia, to a quiet beach on a lesser-known island, to an insight into Europe's most varied biotope in the national parks--it's an invaluable companion. It brings the world-famous sights to life and uncovers some of Greece's secrets, helping readers to escape the crowds and seek out an authentic experience of the country.
The guide features:
*Fascinating insights into Greek history and culture
*Inspiring color photography
*Unbeatable hotel and restaurant listings

'With present day Athens it's rarely love at first sight. Look closely however...and you may be won over by this crazy urban quilt--small oases of green parks hidden amidst the hustle and bustle; tiny family-run tavernas tucked away in the most unexpected places; the feverish pace of its nightlife and summer festivals. And best of all, the Athenians themselves, whose friendliness belies the reputation of most city dwellers'
