Greek Islands (9th ed.)
(Cadogan Guides, USA)
Dana Facaros

5 1/2" x 8 1/4" • 672 pages • full-color photos • maps
ISBN 9781860113253 • paperback • $19.95

Over three thousand islands lie scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas, from barren rocks to mighty Crete, all bathed in a light so clear it can break your heart. To their outrageous beauty, add a big dollop of dreamlike myth and Byzantine murk, olive groves and wild thyme, beaches on the most transparent sea you’ve ever seen, magical nights filled with kefi and swathes of unchained holiday babylon. No one knows them as intimately as Cadogan, whether you seek the elemental Aegean dream or a dance-till-dawn fleshpot. This updated edition packs in 30 years of experience from an author with Greek island roots, a sometime Classics scholar who has been known to belly-dance for a sardine.

Dana Facaros, whose father is from Ikaria, started her travel-writing career in 1977 with this very guide. She is one half of an inimitable writing partnership with her husband Michael Pauls, who are widely acclaimed for their unique blend of eloquent, entertaining cultural comment and practical, discerning travel advice. To date they have over 40 Cadogan guides to their names. Recently she celebrated getting Greek citizenship by breaking every plate in the house.

"Rich in history, keen to point up art, architecture and living culture" – Anthony Sattin, The Sunday Times

"The happiest discovery was Cadogan Guides" – The Times

"Has established a strong reputation. The intimacy of the authors with their subjects shines through" – Bookseller
