Description
Explore the birthplace of Western democracy in Athens, one of the most beautiful and powerful cities of the Mediterranean world in the 5th century BC. Visit the Parthenon and the other temples and monuments on the Acropolis, the elevated center of the city. Spend a day on the Saronic or Euboean coasts, tour the battlefields of the Persian Wars, and, if you can, try to arrange an invitation to a private symposium. Lending a unique you-could-be-there experience to the study of this ancient culture, the book borrows from the convention of modern travel guides to offer a tantalizing look at ancient Greece. The flexible, pocket-sized volume is packed with useful information for the traveler, including where to stay, where to eat, must-see sights, entertainment on a budget, regional maps and itineraries, and emergency medical care, as well as a guide to the people themselves, their local history and politics, and useful phrases.
