Covering the four islands of Naxos, Paros, Amorgos and Santorini, this guidebook presents 35 day walks in the Greek Cyclades. The detailed route description for each walk is accompanied by clear mapping and interspersed with a wealth of insights into the area's vibrant history and culture. The guide also provides details for walking the new coast-to-coast route of the Naxos Strada, broken down into five day walks.There's plenty on offer across these four islands, from the volcanic landscape of Santorini to the remote cliffs and aromatic shrublands of Amorgos, the rugged mountains of Naxos to the cosmopolitan centre of Paros. These walks travel through working landscapes and often showcase different aspects of the islands to the tourist centres, passing through olive groves and vineyards before visiting monasteries, vibrant fishing villages and quarries that produced marble for ancient statues.This book offers all the guidance needed for a trip to the Cyclades, including information about travelling to and from the islands and public transport options for getting to each of the walks. It also features useful contacts and a Greek glossary.
