Got a question about travel to Greece? This is the place to get the answer.
The Best Greece Guide Books
The best travel guide for Greece. Covers major and minor islands and the top destinations on the mainland.
The same content as the above book but this one only covers Athens and the islands.
Not as detailed but smaller and easier to carry around in a backpack.
Lots of great information but I find the layout awkward and a little less user-friendly than Lonely Planet.
The guidebook for sightseeing on the mainland – but nothing on the islands.
A 73 year-old philosopher travels to the Greek islands to figure out why Greeks seem so content with their golden years. This is quality travel writing.
