The land of gods and goddesses, of sunshine and myth, of glorious ruins and romantic islands, Greece has long lured the traveler in search of its splendid history and seductive Mediterranean culture. Only in Greece will one find such icons as the Parthenon, Delphi, Mount Olympus, and countless archaeological treasures. But Greece is more than a collection of ancient sites bearing memories of the glory that once was. It is breathtaking seas, rugged islands, dramatic mountains, and traditional villages offering legendary hospitality. Travelers' Tales Greece captures the country's rich past and equally rich present in a dazzling literary journey. From Corfu to Athens, Crete to Samos, in museums and bakeries and tavernas—scholars, poets, journalists, novelists, and ordinary travelers invite us along to explore this ancient and modern wonder.
