Exploring Rural Greece
In this guide the author divides the country into nine regions, including Corfu, Crete, Rhodes and the main island groups and describes in detail over 30 tours suitable for the independent motorist or cyclist who wants to get away from the usual tourist areas. Each region and tour is summarized with an outline of the local history, terrain and character, and there are suggestions for hotels, useful telephone numbers and other practical points of reference. The introduction includes helpful advice on roads and maps, finding accommodation, places to eat and local customs.
