Description


Greece is a land of great romantic ruins. Each has a history that draws you back to the dawn of time when suddenly this civilisation of great philosophers, tragedians, poets, mathematicians, scientists and healers burst into the Eastern Mediterranean and laid the foundations for so much of what is best in our modern world. There is romance in these ruins but equally it is in abundance in the many small seaside locations where you can set sail for the islands or sit in a simple restaurant by the sea eating the freshest fish with local white wine or a rich souvlaki with red. This is an account of frequent visits I have made to the country since I first got to know it more than ten years ago. Every visit produces delight and sometimes total amazement as when visiting the unbelievable monasteries of Meteora. It has over 50 coloured photographs to capture its special attractions for those who already love the country as well as those who still have the unique experience ahead of them.
