Greece. 3rd edition


This title in the acclaimed Michelin Green Guide series is an indispensable guide to the natural and cultural attractions of Greece - the islands, the mountains of the mainland and their volcanic craters, miles of beaches. The many layers of civilization may be traced in the ancient ruined temples and theatres, the magnificent churches of the Orthodox rite, and rare vestiges of the Venetian and Turkish occupations. The noisy exuberance of Athens contrasts with the natural charm of rural and maritime resorts; the country attracts archeologists and botanists, walkers and mountain climbers, water-sports enthusiasts and sunworshippers. • Descriptions of the country's varied attractions - seaside resorts and mainland towns, archeological sites and museums, mountains and national parks - classified according to the famous Michelin star-rating system: *** Worth a journey ** Worth a detour * Interesting • Two summary maps showing the principal sights and recommended touring programmes • Informative essays in the Introduction presenting background on the country, its history and architecture, its culture and culinary traditions • Practical Information packed with useful addresses and travel advice, information on leisure activities and sports, a calendar of annual events and admission times and charges • More than 130 full-colour photographs • Over 50 detailed town plans, site plans and local maps
