"The Rough Guide to Greece" is the ultimate handbook to the Greek mainland and the islands - right down to the tiniest one-village outcrops. The 24-page, full-colour section introduces all of Greece's highlights, from Mount Pilio's lush countryside and Prespa's beautiful lakes to the fish market in Thessaloniki and the famous oracle site in Delphi. In addition, there are four, brand-new, full-colour inserts: 'Food & Drink', 'Wild Greece', 'Ancient Architecture' and 'Orthdox Festivals'. The guide includes hundreds of incisive reviews of all the best places to eat, drink and sleep, for all budgets. There are practical tips on a wide range of activities, from bird-watching and windsurfing to hiking and cycling. The guide also takes a detailed look at the country's history, culture, mythology and wildlife and comes complete with maps and plans for every region.
