Frommer's Athens and the Greek Islands

This guide is geared to travelers who want to go to Greece for beaches, beautiful weather, island hopping, archaeological riches, and the capital city of Athens. Inside, you’ll find smart itineraries, important historic sights and museums, and the types of restaurants, nightlife, and hidden beauty spots that only the locals know about.

We'll start you off with an in-depth overview of Athens and rewarding day trips from there, before setting off to explore the most beautiful and appealing of Greece's many islands, including the Saronic Gulf Islands, Crete, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the Northeastern Aegean Islands, the Sporades, and the Ionian Islands.

The book contains:


  • Insider advice on the best ways to experience some of the country's most dazzling historic sites and natural landscapes, including tips on the best views, the best scenic drives, and the best activities
  • User-friendly features including star ratings, detailed maps, and a pullout map
  • Exact pricing for hotels, restaurants, attractions, and more, so you can budget for your trip and avoid nasty surprises (no vague symbols for prices in a Frommer’s guide!)
  • Opinionated and detailed reviews of historic sights, museums, hotels, restaurants, and other attractions to help you find what will appeal to you—and what you can skip. Since our authors’ only client is the reader, no listing in this book is paid advertising. Frommer’s takes pride in its tradition of journalistic reporting
  • Large, easy-to-read fonts but thin paper, so the book isn’t too heavy to carry.
  • Helpful planning tips for getting there, getting around, saving money and getting the most from your trip
