About This Book
With its treasure-filled ancient sites, folklore and island flora, the Greek Islands are the jewel in Greece's crown. Be inspired by the new edition of Insight Guide Greek Islands, a detailed full-colour guide to this fascinating region. Insight Guides' unrivaled coverage of history and culture provides an essential introduction to what makes the Greek Isles unique, including its people and identities as well as its sailing scene. Consult the Best of Greek Islands selection for an at-a-glance guide to the region's most evocative attractions, such as the improbably perched Panagia Hozoviotissa Monastery and the eminently strollable Corfu Old Town, and the editor's choice of recommendations for the best museums and hikes, amongst others. Descriptive accounts of where to go in the Greek Islands, from the impressive Place of Knossos, the centre of Europe's first civilisation, to the exquisite beaches on Levkada and Crete, are enhanced by beautiful photographs, while all major sights are cross-referenced with full-colour maps. The travel tips section provides a wealth of information on how to plan your trip, plus our selection of the best hotels.
