By Claudia Martin (Author)
From antiquity to modernity, from the tallest mountains to the tiniest islands, from the Romans to the Venetians to the Ottomans, Greece is a beautiful photographic exploration of this fascinating country. Arranged by region, the book celebrates such classical highlights as Athens’s Acropolis, the ruins at Mycenae in the Peloponnese, the Byzantine churches of Thessaloniki, and the ancient Temple at Delphi. It also explores the beauty of the islands of the Aegean and the Ionian Sea, the Zagori mountains in the northwest of the country, and the hydrothermal craters on Nisyros.
