Overview

StyleCity Athens by Ioanna Kopsiafti, Julia Klimi, Lucas Dietrich

"Super-smart city guides."—Esquire. "Indispensable."—Town & Country.

This exciting series focuses on the vitality and uniqueness of the world's greatest cities. Each volume is superbly designed and produced, yet ingeniously practical, with lavish photography, easy-to-read maps, and informed and enjoyable texts.

From offbeat cafés and cutting-edge restaurants to the most stylish stores, hotels, and neighborhoods, StyleCity uncovers all the special places where both locals and discerning travelers can find a vibrant and idiosyncratic urban experience. The guides are divided into two sections: "Style Traveler" identifies the most memorable places to sleep, eat, drink, shop, and relax; "Street Wise" divides the city into neighborhoods and provides convenient area maps.

Mother of antiquity, modern metropolis, Mediterranean mecca—Athens has many faces and many layers. Since the 2004 Olympics, the city has enjoyed a reinvigorated cultural confidence that has given rise to new talents, chic restaurants, contemporary hot spots, and vibrant self-expression. StyleCity Athens leads visitors to all the highlights of this edgy and energetic place. 400 color illustrations and 6 maps.

This is one of the best travel books I have ever owned. Not only does this book have beautiful photographs but each of the places we went were as good or better than described. The author has a true sense of quality and perfection. I reccomend this book to anyone going to Athens. Experiencing these locations is seeing the best of the best from the best.
