About the Book
This book is the result of a two week photo trip led by Don Lyon of Close-Up Expeditions.
Starting in Athens, we traveled west to various ancient sites including Mycenae & Mystra. Then to the delightful seaside resort of Nafplio. On to Olympia-ruins and excellent museum. Always thru a countryside filled with wild flowers, shepherds & their flocks. Delphi with its well preserved ruins amid the ubiquitious wild flowers & again, an excellent museum. Finally to the spectacular monestaries at Meteora before returning to Athens.
The images at Mykonos & Santorini were taken on a previous Costa Lines cruise.
