Overview

Insight Guide Greece is a full-color, comprehensive travel guide to one of Europe’s most popular destinations, a country famous for its ancient sites and breathtakingly beautiful islands. Each chapter is illustrated by stunning travel photography that gives a vivid portrait of contemporary life in Greece. Be inspired by our Best of Greece section highlighting unmissable sights and experiences, and lavish Photo Features on what makes Greece unique: its treasure-filled ancient sites, folklore, and island flora. With a longer and more in-depth history and culture section than its competitors, this travel guide provides an essential introduction to Greece’s history, from the rich civilizations of Ancient Greece through the Byzantine and Ottoman eras, up to modern times and the Euro crisis. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read.
A detailed Places section, with full-color maps, guides you around the regions and myriad islands which make up this fascinating country, from the impressive Parthenon in Athens and the central region, mythical centre of the ancient world, to the exquisite beaches of its surrounding islands, and Byzantine and Ottoman architecture up in the north.
A comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the travel advice you need to plan your trip. The selective listings for hotels and restaurants are the personal recommendations of our regional specialists.
