Overview
From Old Athens to the city's modern suburbs, from Crete to the Dodecanese and Ionian islands, National Geographic Traveler: Athens & the Island guides you to the better-and lesser-known sights of this Mediterranean hotspot. In between, you'll discover the secrets behind some of the archaeological treasures of one of the world's oldest cities, not to mention the city's trendiest nightspots, as well as secluded beaches and island towns not far from the mainland.
Among the special features of National Geographic Traveler: Athens & the Island are sidebars detailing experiences throughout Greece to make sure that you get to know the culture and the people, inside and out. You can shop like a local in one of Athens' neighborhood markets, attend Greek cooking classes in Ikaria, or visit an eco-village at Milia. Insider tips provided by an array of National Geographic experts--photographers, writers, and grantees who have spent significant time in Greece--direct you to favorite restaurants or festivals and provide useful information that only locals know. Guided walks and drives include a stroll through Rhodes' Old Town, a holy pilgrimage on the trail of St. John in Patmos, and an exploration of ancient Athens that includes the Promenade and Plaka.
An extensive Travelwise section at the back of the guide provides hand-picked hotels and restaurants, tour recommendations, and a glossary that covers must-know words.
