Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Greek geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What's Covered? Get to Know Greece: Athens is a city of tried and true pleasures: the endless parade of cafés, the charming Plaka district, and most of all, the glorious remnants of one of the greatest civilizations the West has produced. Some of the most important remains of ancient Greece, including Delphi, Marathon, and the islands of Aegina, Hydra, and Spetses are only an hour from Athens, on Attica and the Saronic Gulf. West of Athens, the rugged mountains of the Peloponnese cradle some of Greece's most important ancient sites--Olympia, Corinth, Mycenae, and Ancient Messene. To the northeast, the Northern Sporades delivers quintessential Greek-island pleasures: villages spilling down hillsides like giant sugar cubes, Byzantine monasteries, and ageless paths, where the tinkle of goat bells may be the only sound for miles. Less visited than other parts of the country, Epirus in Northern Greece is a land of stark mountains and swift rivers. The route east to Thessaly leads into the Meteora, with spectacular mountaintop Byzantine monasteries that appear to hang in midair. Farther east, the region around Thessaloniki (Greece's second largest city) and Central Macedonia shelters two of Greece's most sacred places, Mount Olympus and Mount Athos. The Cyclades are the ultimate Mediterranean archipelago. Santorini is the most picturesque. Mykonos takes the prize for hedonism. Mountainous Folegandros, verdant Naxos, idyllic Sifnos, and church-studded Tinos all have distinct charms. Crete is Greece's southernmost and largest island. The island is home to some of Greece's tallest mountains, its deepest gorge, many of its best beaches, and a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine wonders. The Dodecanese (Twelve Islands) are the easternmost holdings of Greece and are set around the shores of Turkey and Asia Minor. Each of the green and gold Northern Aegean Islands is distinct: Chios retains an eerie beauty amid its fortified villages and Byzantine monasteries, Lesbos is a forgetaway favored by artists and writers, and lush, mountainous Samos whispers of antiquity. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor's Greece, 9th Edition but differs in some content. Additionally the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.

What's Covered? Get to Know the Greek Islands: When Athenians want a break, they often make a quick crossing to the idyllic islands of the Saronic Gulf. Car-free Hydra is a relaxing retreat with stone houses set above a gorgeously festive harbor. Aegina is noted for its medieval Old Town and magnificent Temple of Aphaia. Spetses has a time-burnished town hiding treasures like Bouboulina's House. To the northeast, the Northern Sporades delivers quintessential Greek-island pleasures: villages spilling down hillsides like giant sugar cubes, Byzantine monasteries, and ageless paths, where the tinkle of goat bells may be the only sound for miles. Off the west coast of the Greek mainland lies Corfu, a temperate multihued island with emerald mountains and turquoise waters. The island has an equally colorful history, reflecting the commingling of Corinthians, Romans, Goths, Normans, and Venetians, among others. The Cyclades are the ultimate Mediterranean archipelago. Santorini is the most picturesque. Mykonos takes the prize for hedonism. Mountainous Folegandros, verdant Naxos, idyllic Sifnos, and church-studded Tinos all have distinct charms. Crete is Greece's southernmost and largest island. The island is home to some of Greece's tallest mountains, its deepest gorge, many of its best beaches, and a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine wonders.

Each of the green and gold Northern Aegean Islands is distinct: Chios retains an eerie beauty amid its fortified villages and Byzantine monasteries, Lesbos is a forgetaway favored by artists and writers, and lush, mountainous Samos whispers of antiquity. Most travelers to the Greek Islands make at least a stopover in Athens. Greece's capital is a city of tried and true pleasures: the endless parade of cafés, the charming Plaka district, and most of all, the glorious remnants of one of the greatest civilizations the West has produced.

by Fodor's

Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Florida's geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What's Covered? Get to Know Aruba: Aruba's biggest high-rise hotels are located along Palm Beach, which is one of the island's best swimming beaches with calm water. You'll have your choice of big resorts, restaurants, casinos and water sports here, but this is a busy place so don't go here to escape from the crowds. Aruba's so-called "low-rise" hotel area, Eagle Beach, is lined with smaller boutique resorts, but also, increasingly, timeshare resorts. Still, Eagle Beach is wider than Palm Beach, so it's not as crowded, and it's the island's best big beach. Just south of Eagle Beach, Manchebo has rougher surf, but it's rarely as crowded and has fewer resorts. The beach here flows directly into Druif Beach, which is dominated by the sprawling Divi resort complex. Oranjestad, Aruba's capital, is a great place to go for shopping, restaurants, and nightlife or to make arrangements for a tour or other activity. Although there are few hotels here, including the beautiful Aruba, the city has no beachfront. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor's In Focus Aruba, 3rd Edition, but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
