Book Description

1 May 2012 Rough Guide to...

The Rough Guide to Greece has been the definitive guidebook to the country for 30 years. This new full-colour edition has been completely revamped and updated, keeping all our best features like detailed background and a journalistic eye for detail, but with new user-friendly accommodation, eating reviews and crystal-clear maps.

Get the lowdown on Greece's world class attractions from the Acropolis to Crete's Minoan Palaces. Rediscover Athens and find the perfect bars to kick off a night out. Read insider tips on the best beaches to escape the crowds, the choicest accommodation from boutique to backpacker plus information on how to hike the Samarian Gorge, windsurf off Corfu or hire a yacht in the Cyclades.

As our readers put it: "a superb bit of kit - and as essential as a pair of shorts", "what really shines through is the writers love of the subject", "entertaining and a wealth of information".

Make the most of your time, with The Rough Guide to Greece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rough Guide Greece 8 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a Rough Guide enthusiast I added this to my growing bookshelf recently - just before visiting two entirely different Greek locations. The content was every bit as good as I have come to expect, although the "new layout" came as something of a disappointment. I am very comfortable with the old layout of the guides, and found the changes hindered rather than helped. I expect newcomers to the Rough Guide community would be perfectly happy though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too often just plain wrong 15 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used to always travel with the Rough Guides as they were reliable, informative and opinionated. For doing a road trip around mainland Greece we bought this as the most up to date guide book out there. We were disappointed at almost every stop we made. Above all else it was just a bit bland.

Many museum and archaelogical site opening times were wrong, some museums which have clearly been open for several years weren't even in the book (eg at Thermopylae), etc. It just lacked accuracy and often lacked any great detail when you were away from the main tourist areas.

Looks like the days of printed guide books are at an end as we found it was usually more reliable to find a free wi-fi spot and look up some Greek websites or maps ourselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rough guides good but not on a kindle 29 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having a guide on a kindle might save on weight but is quite frustrating when you need to flick back and forth and mark hotels - maybe the solution is to put the narrative detail on kindle and a smaller version on information on places in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rough Guides continue to evolve 20 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This replaced our well worn 1998 edition. The new layout, together with colour printing and greatly improved maps made it a worthwhile purchase. Still prefer the printed guide book to e-editions, and Rough Guides have always been my first choice. Just back from 3 weeks travelling around the mainland and a few islands - found this book to be accurate and very useful. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better 27 Jun 2013
By Pen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The rough guide to Greece is reasonably comprehensive. I've only awarded it 3 stars because the kindle editions maps are not as good as those found in the paper book and the lack of a comprehensive index is annoying.

For more detailed guides to archeological sites I still rely on a Blue Guide!
