Synopses & Reviews
You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Greece.
Following the self-guided tours in this book, youll explore Athens' most popular sights, including the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, and the National Archaeological Museum. Experience the culture like a local—enjoy an evening meal of souvlaki at a breezy café, then sip ouzo at a rollicking taverna in the Plaka. Line up at the starting block at Olympia's historic stadium, then set sail for the idyllic Greek island of Hydra.
Ricks candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. Youll learn how to get around Athens and the Peoponnese like a local, and get advice on which sights are worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.
