|Cadogan’s authors confidently explore the best-kept secrets of this ancient land, from renowned biblical sites to exquisitely tiled mosques, from lively Istanbul to the unearthly landscapes and silent lakes of the little-known east. Hand-picked and unusual places to stay and eat, easy-to-use maps, clear layout and intelligent cultural background combine with discerning advice on everything from baths and buses to bazaars and bargaining. Insights into Byzantine civilization alternate with tales of Islamic splendor, tea etiquette and Trojan treasures to make a guide that is as entertaining as it is practical.
Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls are passionate about Europe and have written over 40 guides for Cadogan, including many in the flagship France, Italy and Spain series. They have lived all over Europe, but are currently settled in an idyllic farmhouse surrounded by vineyards in the Lot Valley, France.
