If it's Ancient Greece you're interested in, our authors will guide you from the Acropolis to the islands (the geographical and spiritual center of the Cyclades). In the 21st century, they'll point you toward the best resorts, hotels, nightlife and shopping in Athens and the islands. "Greeks may not live to eat, but they certainly take what they eat, and how it is prepared very seriously," says our (well-fed) author, who takes you from kafeneion (coffee house) to ouzeri to psistaria (for grilled meats), tavernas and beyond. An entire chapter gives you a rundown on cruising the Greek Islands, from picking the right cruise, to budgeting, getting ready to go, and a summary of some of the ships, from large to small, that ply the Mediterranean. Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way. Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.

Author: Stephen Brewer

ISBN: 1628872861
Release Date: 2016-12-20
Genre:

The recent economic crisis in Greece has, paradoxically enough, created better conditions for tourism. The Greeks are painfully aware that tourism is their best-functioning remaining industry. They value the visitor as never before, treat them with a warmth and courtesy that exceeds what you ll find in other parts of Europe. And more people are therefore coming here in unprecedented numbers. To bring the current message of Greek tourism to a reading public, we've called upon the research and writing talents of one of America's foremost travel journalists. Stephen Brewer has been writing travel guides for almost three decades. As an editor and writer, he has focused not just on the Frommer guides but on European coverage for such magazines as "Esquire," "Connoisseur" and "Geo." In "Frommer's Athens and the Greek Islands," he brings tremendous insight into how to best approach and understand both the famed and lesser-known (but still fascinating) historic sights of Athens and the adjoining Peloponnese, as well as the recreational resorts and life of the enchanting Greek islands. The book contains: -Helpful maps, including a handy pull-out map -A 16-page photo guide -Exact pricing so there s never any ugly surprises -Opinionated reviews of historic sights and other attractions, hotels, restaurants, "

Get inspired and plan your next trip with Fodor’s ebook travel guide to the Greek Islands and the Best of Athens. Intelligent Planning: Discover all of the essential, up-to-date travel insights you expect in a Fodor’s guide, including Fodor’s Choice dining and lodging, top experiences and attractions, and detailed planning advice. Easy Navigation for E-Readers: Whether you’re reading this ebook from start to finish or jumping from chapter to chapter as you develop your itinerary, Fodor’s makes it easy to find the information you need with a single touch. In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse. Full-Color Photos and Maps: It’s hard not to fall in love with the Greek Islands as you flip through a vivid full-color photo album. Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Greek geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What’s Covered? Get to Know the Greek Islands: When Athenians want a break, they often make a quick crossing to the idyllic islands of the Saronic Gulf. Car-free Hydra is a relaxing retreat with stone houses set above a gorgeously festive harbor. Aegina is noted for its medieval Old Town and magnificent Temple of Aphaia. Spetses has a time-burnished town hiding treasures like Bouboulina’s House. To the northeast, the Northern Sporades delivers quintessential Greek-island pleasures: villages spilling down hillsides like giant sugar cubes, Byzantine monasteries, and ageless paths, where the tinkle of goat bells may be the only sound for miles. Off the west coast of the Greek mainland lies Corfu, a temperate multihued island with emerald mountains and turquoise waters. The island has an equally colorful history, reflecting the commingling of Corinthians, Romans, Goths, Normans, and Venetians, among others. The Cyclades are the ultimate Mediterranean archipelago. Santorini is the most picturesque. Mykonos takes the prize for hedonism. Mountainous Folegandros, verdant Naxos, idyllic Sifnos, and church-studded Tinos all have distinct charms. Crete is Greece’s southernmost and largest island. The island is home to some of Greece’s tallest mountains, its deepest gorge, many of its best beaches, and a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine wonders. The Dodecanese (Twelve Islands) are the easternmost holdings of Greece and are set around the shores of Turkey and Asia Minor. Each of the green and gold Northern Aegean Islands is distinct: Chios retains an eerie beauty amid its fortified villages and Byzantine monasteries, Lesbos is a forgetaway favored by artists and writers, and lush, mountainous Samos whispers of antiquity. Most travelers to the Greek Islands make at least a stopover in Athens. Greece’s capital is a city of tried and true pleasures: the endless parade of cafés, the charming Plaka district, and most of all, the glorious remnants of one of the greatest civilizations the West has produced. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor’s Greek Islands, 2nd Edition but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images
