I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could.

"Hotels, resorts, restaurants, vineyards, galleries" is the accurate subtitle. Normally I don't go for celebrations of upscale Greece, the raw countryside and humble villages are upscale enough in terms of the density of beauty and real human life, but this book is a fun exception.

A very visual take on things, it does tend to focus on high-end consumer spending, but it does also have some nice references to events, sites and galleries (interpreted widely). The photography is particularly good with a few of the images being very striking indeed. In the end it is a little too much focused on hotels and restaurants to be really useful - a little broader range of cultural institutions would be nice. Some of the maps are not that helpful for locating the places discussed.

I don't think you'd really used this to plan a trip, but it is a great browse.

Covers all the country, arranged into geographical sections.
