Now in its 9th edition, Greek Islands was the very first Cadogan guide and it remains a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. Now fully redesigned, this new edition contains the most up-to-the-minute practical information and listings, along with color photographs and detailed maps – everything you need for your very own island adventure. The author Dana Facaros, who is half-Greek, has over two decades of Greek travel experience to share, all of which will quickly have you booking the next flight to this idyllic collection of islands Packed with information on each of the seven major island groups, the guide celebrates the diversity of the islands, ranging from the cocktail bars and glamorous beaches of Mykonos to the quiet medieval monasteries of Patmos. The history and culture of the islands are, of course, given the usual wry and informed Cadogan treatment.

Over 3,000 islands lie scattered in the Aegean and Ionian seas, from barren rocks to mighty Crete, all bathed in light so clear it can break your heart. To their outrageous beauty, add a big dollop of dream-like myth and Byzantine mutk, olive groves and wild thyme, beaches on the most transparent sea you’ve ever seen, magical nights filled with kéfi and swathes of unchained holiday babylon. No one knows them as intimately as Cadogan, whether you seek the elemental Aegean dream or a dance-till-dawn fleshpot. This updated edition packs in 30 years of experience from an author with Greek island roots, a sometimes classical scholar who has been known to bellydance for a sardine.
Dana Facaros is passionate about Europe and has written over 30 books for Cadogan her first being the guide to the Greek Islands which she still visits annually to see her family.
