Publisher's Description

Active travelers trust National Geographic to deliver what they want in a guidebook: expert advice, insider tips, and the cultural feel of each destination not easily found online. These guides are pitch-perfect for today's experiential travel enthusiasts who want an authentic, enriching immersion.

Explore the best sites in Greece--from the Acropolis and ancient Delphi to Athens's newest neighborhoods and Santorini sunsets--with this gorgeous guide, replete with updated information and travel tips, cut-away illustrations of some of the country's famous structures, an array of detailed maps, and sumptuous photographs. Broken into chapters by cities and areas (including Athens, the Peloponnese, Macedonia and the North, and both the popular and lesser-known islands), it also features a fascinating introduction to Greek history and culture. Special in-depth sidebars discuss Greek drama, the Olympic Games, the Battle of Crete, and where to take a Greek language course, learn to cook Greek food on Crete, volunteer with the Hellenic Ornithological Society, meet winemakers, participate in a marble sculpture workshop on Tinos, make a tapestry-weaving, collect mushrooms in the Pindos Mountains, and much more. While guided tours include a walk in Rhodes' Old Town, a boat trip around Mount Athos, and a drive in northern Evvoia. An extensive travel planner details practicalities, including where to find the best tavernas and the finest gold jewelry.
