This title in the acclaimed Michelin Green Guide series is an indispensable guide to the natural and cultural attractions of Greece - the islands, the mountains of the mainland and their volcanic craters, miles of beaches. The many layers of civilization may be traced in the ancient ruined temples and theatres, the magnificent churches of the Orthodox rite, and rare vestiges of the Turkish occupation. The noisy exuberance of Athens contrasts with the natural charm of rural and maritime resorts; the country attracts archeologists and botanists, walkers and mountain climbers, water-sports enthusiasts and sunworshippers.Product Description:
