This book offers engaging information and useful tidbits. It's more upscale than "Let's Go," but at 800 pages, offers more complete listings. It includes sets of attractive colored pictures. The maps are in black and white but very detailed. This guide provides practical information designed to get you around Greece. It includes information on ferry time tables and offers a range of places to stay and dine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed valuable information Oct. 15 2010
I, in general, use Lonely Planet books to plan our trips and have found, in general, the information to be reliable and helpful. I bought the Lonely Planet Greece 9th Edition (2010) to plan for our trip to Greece in Oct 2010. Although this new edition was helpful I found it to missed some valuable information, for example the list of tour companies in Athens was not organized in what they offer to give more clarity to the reader and missed also to mention some big and reliable tour companies like Walking Tours. We wanted to include a visit to the Cyclades Islands, in particular Santorini, and because I have an older edition of Lonely Planet Greek Islands 2000, I was hoping to get some newer information from the 2010 edition. To my surprise, the information provided in both editions about Santorini was very similar, very limited number of places to stay was mentioned, there is no reference to places to stay in Firostefani and Imerovigli, and it is very easy to stay in any of those and to reach Fira and Oia from any of them. There is a beautiful cliff top walkway all the way from Fira to Firostefani to Imerovigli to Oia, very easy to do part of it walking, or all of it, or combine sections of it with a bus ride (which is what we did), the only reference to this pass in the Fira section of the new edition is almost saying `don't do it'. Authors should give the facts, all the facts, and leave the readers to make their decisions based on all the facts provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travel Book May 2 2010
Lonely Planet Greece 9th ed. is a great book. I am so glad that I got it to plan my trip to Athens. I also ordered the Athens Encounter and it too was a great book. Ordering it from Amazon was quick and easy as per usual. Strongly recommend this book if you're planning a trip out that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST HAVE for travel in Greece March 8 2009
This book helped us so many times when we travelled to Greece. The sccomodations recommended were awesome. The book is well written with many very good suggestions. Our experience in Greece would not have been the same without. Because of the book we ventured out on our own with a rental car to southern Greece from Athens and it was AWESOME! Always buy a copy of the Lonely Planet no matter where you travel. We always do. It's worth it.
