Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands
Perfect for those historically inclined that want to hop from island to island
Reviewed by P. Caetano
This is a great compilation in one book of the 20 books by the author of this blue book Prof. McGilchrist which covered about 70 islands. I find this the best overview of the Aegean islands historical sites It is useful to chose main island to fly to and plan which “satellite” islands around it are worthwhile to visit by ferry or local water taxi. Chapter on Rhodes perfect about seeing classic Greek period acropolis on Lindos, medieval town in Rhodes old town and advice on n historical settlements to see in nearby Symi and Chalki islands. As for also enjoying the beaches, kids activities, water sports, restaurants, lodging, etc bring along one of the more common tour generalist travel book.
