Description


Whether you plan to watch the sun sink behind the marble columns of the Parthenon in Athens, visit iconic archaeological sites such as Delphi and Olympia, or simply soak up the sun on the sandy beaches of Halkidikí, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that mainland Greece has to offer.

World-class museums and archaeological sites may be the first things that come to mind when you think of Greece, but there are things both old and new to explore. Take Europe's oldest city, for example: Athens has a youthful energy and buzzing nightlife, where upmarket restaurants stand alongside traditional grill eateries and old-school ouzeris jostle with the trendy cocktail bars of up-and-coming urban neighborhoods. Meanwhile, Thessaloniki, Greece's second-largest city, awes visitors with its Byzantine churches and vibrant contemporary art scene.

You'll discover:


-Our pick of Greece's must-sees, top experiences and hidden gems
-The best spots to eat, drink, shop and stay
-Detailed maps and walks that make navigating the country easy
-Easy-to-follow itineraries
-Expert advice: get ready, get around and stay safe
-Color-coded chapters to every part of Greece, from Central Athens North to Central Athens South, The Peloponnese to Northern Greece
-A lightweight format, so you can take it with you wherever you go

Our updated guide brings Greece to life, transporting you there like no other travel guide does with expert-led insights, trusted travel advice, detailed breakdowns of all the must-see sights, photographs on practically every page, and our hand-drawn illustrations that place you inside the country's iconic buildings and neighborhoods.
