  • Our authors—a resident of Athens and a veteran author of Greece guidebooks—share their tips on dining, shopping, and nightlife in Athens, Thessaloniki, Ioannina, and the islands; avoiding crowds and long lines at the Parthenon, the theatre at Epidaurus, and other top ancient sites; navigating the Greek ferry system; and finding just the right beach—from Rhodes resorts with amenities and watersports to isolated coves of pristine sand.
  • Follow in the footsteps of the gods on Mount Olympus; rock stars and shipping magnates on Mykonos; Alexander the Great in Macedonia; the Minoans on Crete; Golden Age Greeks amid the ancient ruins of the Peloponnese; St. John on Patmos; monks on Meteora; the Byzantines in Thessaloniki; the Venetians on beautiful Corfu; and the Ottomans throughout Greece.
  • Active travel adventures include hiking the Samaria Gorge; climbing Mount Olympus; sailing to Santorini or through the National Marine Park in the Northern Sporades; swimming on a range of beaches, and more.
  • Frommer's Greece Day by Day also includes a color fold-out map in a handy pouch.
