Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides -- This edition includes detailed coverage of the major resorts and archaeological sites, Venetian and Ottoman architecture, the island's unique landscape and wildlife, and its important history in the Second World War. Plenty of practical tips--how to get around, where to stay, and what to eat (Crete has some of the best cuisine in Greece)--are also included. For the first time in full colour with amplified and detailed maps. Paola Pugsley is a Cambridge-based professional archaeologist who often works on location in Greece and Turkey. -- "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph. "Guide books in the grand tradition of thoroughness and objectivity" Georgia Review.
