This "Guide to Greece" is an extremely comprehensive guidebook for tourists, concentrating on buildings, tombs and statues and including a lot of information on mythological, religious and historical background to the monuments described. It is so informative that it may be called the foundation of classical archaeology, and this ancient baedeker is still used as a guide to classical Greece. Peter Levi has visited the sites himself and his brilliant commentary in this two-volume edition includes reference to all the most important discoveries of modern scholarship and archaeology. Volume 1 describes central Greece including Athens, Delphi and Mycenae.
