I snagged this book, noticing that it had a chapter-long historical essay for each city, and expecting that it would cover Paul's full itinerary. But alas! Mitylene (Acts 20:14) is missing. Still, it does have articles on the cities of each of the Seven Churches of Asia, which figure in a variety of esoteric lore.

Although the book is obviously intended to appeal to readers motivated by Christian piety, the author is a classicist who provides plenty of useful detail on the pagan settings of the first century c.e. It's a fairly relaxed and interesting introduction to its topic.
