This was a great book to prepare for my Athens, Greece trip. I used it to figure out all the things that I wanted to see and do. Most times when I go on vacation, I just wing it and wait till I arrive at my destination to figure out what to do. But with the aid of this book, I had an idea of what to do, when was the best time to do it and get the most out of my time there. There are so many tips I learned from this book. During the trip, we were sitting at a cafe after a day of wandering and I was startled to find myself in a location pictured in the book. Not just a similar cafe, but the same exact one down to the specialty board near the entrance! If your planning to go to Greece, this is a book you should have.
