Click to preview Visiting Greece photo book

These are candid scenes we encountered on some islands and stops during our tour of Greece - starting with 3-day cruise, and then we used ferries over 11-days as we visited the beautiful islands of the Cyclades. On the cruise we stopped at Kusadasi, Turkey, to visit Ephesus, where Mary, mother of Jesus spent her last days 2,000 years ago. These pictures are moments in time as my wife and I enjoyed the sights on Mykonos, Ios, Paros, Patmos, Rhodes, Santorini, Naxos, Hydra, and parts of Athens. We toured the Acropolis there, and a few more on other stops in the Aegean Sea.
This is a good book to show you some of what you will experience on such a visit, or might want since you have already, and not just a tour book approach.
