RHODES - the Sunshine Isle


  Books About Greece


With so many really good and some excellent  books written about such a venerable country it is sometimes difficult to choose.  If you need a guide book or a book about Greek culture, Greek food or whatever, then I suggest you peruse the on-line booksellers  who all have a good variety for purchase.  I would certainly rank Lonely planet and the Rough Guide series as joint tops, but also recommend the indispensable Blue Guide for a comprehensive catalogue for those who are more academic in their travels.

Please note that you can download pages directly from Lonely Planet and purchase their books from their own website, accessible below.
