About this title:

Synopsis: Greece is renowned as the cradle of democracy - the land where classical architecture, theatre and poetry were born. In this text, Arthus-Bertrand, an aerial photographer, presents the ampitheatres, temples and columns as seen from the air - symbols of antiquity amongst a rocky Mediterranean landscape and lush olive groves. Captions illuminate the views, providing geographical, historical and cultural information. The history of Mount Athos, the ancient ruins of Crete, the Acropolis and the stadium of Olympia are all pictured and detailed, along with the beaches of Ios, Mykonos and Corfu, busy seaports and bustling Athens with its centrepiece, the Parthenon.

Review: The Mediterranean light hits the Greek islands in a special way. For thousands of years authors have been trying to describe it, and Yann Arthus-Bertrand's sumptuous photography brings it alive. The 102 color aerial photographs in Greece from the Air depict a craggy, flower-specked coast against an aqua sea, cultivated fields, houses built into cliffs, the Theater of Dionysus, the harbor of Piraeus, the village of Thera built on a colossal rocky mount 120 meters high, the green-swathed hills of Thessaloníki, and Ia with its narrow streets, whitewashed staircases, and blue-domed churches. Janine Trotereau's text provides context and history, but it is the pictures, lyrical and evocative, that will hypnotize you into booking your next vacation in Greece.
