The Rough Guide To Greece (10th Edition) by Mark Ellingham
The Rough Guide to Greece is the ultimate handbook to the Greek mainland and the islands - from cosmopolitan Athens to the little-known one-village outcrops. The guide includes a 24-page full-colour introduction, with the authors pick of the country's highlights in the 'things not to miss' section. Every metre of this diverse country is covered, from the stunning beaches of northeast Pilio to the dramatic Byzantine town of Mystra. For each area, there are comprehensive and insightful listings of the best hotels, guest houses, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. There is also informative advice on a wide range of activities, from bird-watching at the Prespa lakes to windsurfing at Vassiliki and hiking on Mount Olympus. Finally, the Contexts section provides detailed accounts of the country's history, culture, mythology and wildlife.
