A Conversation with Amanda Summer, author of 100 Places In Greece Every Woman Should Go. June 23, 2016.
With style, intelligence, and personal anecdotes gleaned from years of working in Greece, archaeologist and award-winning writer Amanda Summer is your personal guide to the best of Greece. In crisp and often humorous storytelling she introduces you to the temples, shrines, grottoes, and churches of this magnificent country, intricately weaving in stories of the women—from goddesses of mythology Athena, Artemis, and Aphrodite to goddesses of cinema and the arts Melina Mercouri, Irini Papas, and Maria Callas—who have molded the history and culture of Greece itself.

While reading 100 Places in Greece… I found myself being transported back to my first trip to Greece in the late 1970’s. Amanda’s words brought back so much of the excitement I felt then as I traveled by foot, bus and ferry from place to place. The thrill of hiking down the Samaria Gorge, exploring the Plaka, taking the funicular to the top of Lykavittos Hill and seeing the Parthenon…I could go on and on.
