A useful travel guide to Greece
25 March 2012

This is the first Lonely Planet guide that I have read cover to cover.

This was a helpful book in preparing for our trip to Greece. It is broken up into geographical sections and is arranged in a way that makes sense.

Good maps, reliable reviews of restaurants (although one we looked for has closed) and solid info about sites etc. Our trip was enriched by having the book.
