With coverage from everything from archaeological sites to windsurfing, discos to traditional festivities, this new edition has discovered a number of previously unvisited villages, remote Byzantine churches with 14th-century frescoes, explored some newly excavated sites and added several new maps. This guide has lists of accommodation, restaurants, bars and clubs in the resorts, and it also tells the reader how to escape from them, to find village "Kafenia" and tavernas, to climb in the mountains and trek down the gorges. At the same time there's coverage of the island's history, from Europe's earliest civilization - the Minoan sites are explored in detail, with plans - through Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish occupation, to union with Greece and the German invasion in World War more
