The sheer number of distinguished buildings is astonishing for a city of Savannah s size." John Berendt, from the Foreword

The National Trust Guide to Savannah takes you on an illustrated walking tour through the breathtakingly gorgeous squares and neighborhoods of one of North America s most beautiful cities.
