Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Greece's island of Crete and the Republic of Cyprus remain perennial holiday destinations owing to their rich histories, cultural resources, cuisines, climates, and friendly locals. Frommer's "Day by Day" guides fit easily into a jacket pocket and solve the dilemma of finding the best sites to see and affordable places to stay and dine for visits lasting a day, three days, a week, or longer. Outstanding features include the full-color illustrations, maps, photographs, and a sturdy, removable map that features street and island views. Each book gives solid tips for mapping out urban and regional tours, outdoor adventures, and getting around. For example, a three-day tour of Crete hits the Palace of Knossos and the Kazantzakis Museum in Myrtia on the first day; the capital's museums, churches, and parks on the second day; and the beach, aquarium, and outdoor museum at Hersonissos on the last. A three-day tour of Cyprus might feature a castle and medieval museum in Limassol, archaeological sites in Kourion, and Kolossi Castle on the first day; sightseeing in villages and vineyards on the second day; and finishing in Nicosia and Lefkara. VERDICT Travelers preparing to visit either place may wish to read more detailed guides such as John Freely's Crete: Discovering the 'Great Island' or Tim Boatswain's A Traveller's History of Cyprus and tuck one of these Frommer's guides in their hand luggage. Highly recommended. (Library Journal, October 2010)
