Overview

Get inspired and plan your next trip with Fodor’s ebook travel guide to Greece.

Intelligent Planning: Discover all of the essential, up-to-date travel insights you expect in a Fodor’s guide, including Fodor’s Choice dining and lodging, top experiences and attractions, and detailed planning advice.

Easy Navigation for E-Readers: Whether you’re reading this ebook from start to finish or jumping from chapter to chapter as you develop your itinerary, Fodor’s makes it easy to find the information you need with a single touch. In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse.

Full-Color Photos and Maps: It’s hard not to fall in love with Greece as you flip through a vivid full-color photo album. Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Greek geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook.

What’s Covered? Get to Know Greece: Athens is a city of tried and true pleasures: the endless parade of cafés, the charming Plaka district, and most of all, the glorious remnants of one of the greatest civilizations the West has produced.
Some of the most important remains of ancient Greece, including Delphi, Marathon, and the islands of Aegina, Hydra, and Spetses are only an hour from Athens, on Attica and the Saronic Gulf.

West of Athens, the rugged mountains of the Peloponnese cradle some of Greece’s most important ancient sites—Olympia, Corinth, Mycenae, and Ancient Messene.
To the northeast, the Northern Sporades delivers quintessential Greek-island pleasures: villages spilling down hillsides like giant sugar cubes, Byzantine monasteries, and ageless paths, where the tinkle of goat bells may be the only sound for miles.

Less visited than other parts of the country, Epirus in Northern Greece is a land of stark mountains and swift rivers. The route east to Thessaly leads into the Meteora, with spectacular mountaintop Byzantine monasteries that appear to hang in midair. Farther east, the region around Thessaloniki (Greece’s second largest city) and Central Macedonia shelters two of Greece’s most sacred places, Mount Olympus and Mount Athos.

The Cyclades are the ultimate Mediterranean archipelago. Santorini is the most picturesque. Mykonos takes the prize for hedonism. Mountainous Folegandros, verdant Naxos, idyllic Sifnos, and church-studded Tinos all have distinct charms.

Crete is Greece’s southernmost and largest island. The island is home to some of Greece’s tallest mountains, its deepest gorge, many of its best beaches, and a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine wonders.

The Dodecanese (Twelve Islands) are the easternmost holdings of Greece and are set around the shores of Turkey and Asia Minor.

Each of the green and gold Northern Aegean Islands is distinct: Chios retains an eerie beauty amid its fortified villages and Byzantine monasteries, Lesbos is a forgetaway favored by artists and writers, and lush, mountainous Samos whispers of antiquity.

Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor’s Greece, 9th Edition but differs in some content. Additionally the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
