Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Even in mythic Greece, everything old is new again. While

ageless in the appeal of its ancient ruins and sunbelievable

beaches, Greece now has a hip and happening vibe. The

post-Olympic "European" country is burgeoning with luxe

resorts, hot restaurants, and sophisticated nightlife that

challenges the Zorba-era conceptions of the spartan Aegean. To

track all the buzz, this new edition comes newly loaded with photos,

magazine-like features on Greek style, and expanded island coverage.

If travelers want to find out where Zeuss sky is faultlessly

azure, Poseidons sea warm, and Dionysuss nightlife swinging

(especially in Mykonoss discos), this is the one guidebook to buy.

● New photo-rich special sections on Greek culture, food, and

history include “Oppa!: How to Dance like Zorba,” “Ye Gods!:

Whos Who in Greek Mythology,” and “Let the Games

Begin!: A Visit to Olympia.”

● New “Experience Greece” chapter highlights the top attractions,

the best beaches, practical itineraries, and tips for planning

your trip.

● New “Cruising the Greek Islands” chapter has reviews of every

major cruise line and itinerary sailing the Greek isles.

● Unique topographic, interactive maps of each region in Greece.

● Names of major cities, towns, and ports of call appear in English

and Greek.
