An ingenious book that brings ancient Athens to life-perfect for anyone traveling to Greece
The 2004 Olympic Games are expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to Athens between August 13th and 29th-and most of these visitors will take a break from the games to visit Athens' most famous tourist attraction, the Acropolis. That's where this unique guidebook comes in. Contemporary full-color photos show what the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Propylaea, and all the other celebrated ruins on the Acropolis and elsewhere in Athens look like today. But with the flip of a meticulously painted acetate overlay, people can see exactly what each site looked like back in the 5th century b.c! And for visitors who are traveling outside of Athens, the book also includes the best sites in Olympia, Cape Sounion, and Aegina. Small enough to fit comfortably in a pocket or purse, spiral-bound for ease of use, and complete with concise descriptions of each archeological site, this is the perfect secondary guidebook for any traveler who wants to grasp the glory that was Greece.
