Product Notes

Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) fell in love with Greece at age 20, when she mistakenly went to the tiny island of Poros instead of the much larger island of Paros. (She had a marvelous time.) Now a seasoned, passionate traveler and veteran television host (Joanna Lumley's Nile), she embarks on a journey through this vast and storied land that goes far beyond it's white churches and blue seas. Greece has given US democracy, drama, science, philosophy, medicine, and the Muses. Generations of invading empires have shaped it's traditions and cultures. Lumley visits the Parthenon, Delphi, the Gates of Hades, Mount Olympus, and the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Veering off the tourist trail, she explores a former leper colony, meets remote villagers who speak in whistles, leaps over a bonfire, and convinces soprano Nana Mouskouri to sing for her. In this "charming travelogue" (Daily Mail, U.K.), Lumley shows US a Greece now caught between it's past glories and present challenges.
