Description


Beyond the breathtaking beauty of the Parthenon, Athens is still one of Europe’s lesser-known cities. Athens: A New Guide fully explores all the treasures of this ancient city—the bazaars and food markets of Monastiraki; tiny tucked-away Byzantine churches and rare gems of antiquity; the converted warehouses of the increasingly fashionable Psirri and Thiso; and perhaps the most beautiful metro station in the world at Syntagma, a fantasy of shimmering reflections and a showcase for recent archaeology. From its amber shops and patisseries, to one of the most outstanding museums in Europe, Athens is a true source of riches. Written for both the first-time visitor as well as the seasoned Hellenophile, this discerning guide also includes an up-to-date selection of cafés, restaurants, and hotels. Elizabeth Speller read Archeology and Classics at Cambridge, where she is currently a Visiting Scholar.
