Encompassing all six of Greece's island groups - starting in the west with the Ionian islands, moving east to the Argo-Saronics, continuing to the Cyclades, Crete and the Dodecanese, circling up to the North Aegean islands and back round to the Sporades and Evia - "The Secrets of the Greek Islands" highlights some of the most beautiful landscapes and villages of the Mediterranean. From the well known hot spots of Corfu, Rhodes and Kos down to the smaller or lesser known islands such as Meganisi, Poros and Alonnisos, this stunning giftbook takes you on a journey through olive groves, secret coves and white-washed villas clinging to the rocks.
