Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides -- The result of five years of fresh research by author Nigel McGilchrist, and detailed editing by Michael Metcalfe and Heinrich Hall, this is the first full Blue Guide treatment of all the Greek Aegean islands in a single volume. Lovingly written, it contains a wealth of detail on all aspects of these popular destinations: early history and archaeology, Classical and Byzantine art and architecture, Venetian and Ottoman monuments, and present-day concerns such as where to eat, which beaches to visit, and how to get from island to island. Illustrations to inform rather than to decorate: maps, diagrams, floor plans, architectural details and photographs. -- Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth Daily Telegraph.
