Western Europe - Greece (Chapter)
This is the Greece chapter from Lonely Planet's Western Europe guidebook.
With an alluring combination of history and hedonism, it's easy to see why most visitors head home vowing to return. Travellers to Greece inevitably adopt a favourite site they long to return to - get out there and find yours.
- island-hop at your own pace under the Aegean sun
- trace the ancient to the modern from the Acropolis to booming nightclubs in Athens
- lose yourself within the medieval walls of Rhodes Old Town
- restaurants & accommodation
