The Rough Guide to the Dodecanese and East Aegean Islands is the most comprehensive handbook to these two scenic archipelagos, comprising of 27 islands. This guide features a full-colour introduction showing the highlights of the islands, each with its distinctive personality, history, architecture and flora - from lush groves of cypress, pine and olive to volcanic crags and salt marshes. There are critical reviews of the best places to stay, from hostel dorms to five-star luxury hotels and detailed coverage of the best hikes, hidden beaches and historic monuments. As with all Rough Guides, there are detailed maps and plans for every region pinpointing listings and places of interest.
