The photos are good but the plan drawings are excellent. For those sites I have visted personally, they rang true and gave a good overview (some sites, like Olympia, are confusing on the ground, so a good plan is very helpful in making sense of it). I have run in the real Olympic stadium! Best of all is that the English translation of the Italian original is excellent. For archeology books, this is rare indeed. Inspirational - I want to see more... Overall, this is the best single-portable-volume guide I have ever struck, for Greece or anywhere else.

This book is filled with useful information and stunningly photographed pictures of Ancient Greece. I have been a fan of Ancient History for a long time now and this book gave me a good idea of what it was like in Ancient Greece. I definitely recommend it if your are an amateur enthusiast of history. Don't pass up this great book about the past.
