Acropolis

The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The Parthenon is the one of the most significant structures in the world. Built in 440 BC, the architectural features and size of this ancient temple is a must-see. The Agora was the open-air market of Athens and remains of the most visited sites in Greece today. In addition to being a place where people gathered to buy and sell goods, it was also a place where people assembled to discuss important topics: business, politics, current events, or the nature of the universe and the divine. Syntagma Square (also known as Constitution Square) is the city center of Athens and all areas meet back at this central location. It has a long and storied history through war, rebuilds, and democracy. Pláka is the old historical neighborhood of Athens, situated around the slopes of the Acropolis, and features labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Cape Sounion is noted as the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the ‘god of the sea’ in classical mythology. The remains are perched high on a hill, surrounded on three sides by the sea.

Rhodes Island

This is an island in Greece that is known for its beautiful shores that are part of the Aegean Sea. Historically relevant sites are scattered throughout this island including Temple of Apollo, Acropolis of Rhodes, and Acropolis of Lindos. Additionally, Rhodes has a vibrant nightlife with clubs and restaurants. You can museum stroll by day and go clubbing at night. The Colossus of Rhodes was considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This giant bronze statue was documented as once standing at the harbor. It was completed in 280 BC and destroyed in an earthquake in 224 BC. No trace of the statue remains today. Rhodes Greece is the largest and most popular island of Dodecanese. With 300 days of sunshine per year, Rhodes Island is mostly famous for the romantic Old Town. The Old Town is among the best-preserved Medieval Towns of Europe, with strong walls, an impressive castle, paved paths and elegant stone mansions. The Acropolis of Lindos is overlooking the picturesque village and dates from the Hellenistic period.

Corfu Museums

Crystal clear azure ocean waters are famous in Corfu. Unique architecture here is a star point of visiting. Much of the architecture takes cues from Venetian-Roman styling. Due to its strong historical connection with Europe, this was among the first Greek islands to open to tourism. Paleokastritsa, Sidari, Kassiopi and Acharavi are nice tourist areas on the northern side of the island, while the inland is dotted with lovely villages and many attractions. Apart from the wonderful beaches, the highlight of the island is the Old Town with a characteristic Venetian style. There are dozens of churches and museums in Corfu which highlight the history of the area with architecture, artifacts, texts, and more. Achilleion is a fairy palace built among cypresses and myrtles by the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who wished to escape from the Austrian court. In Corfu you can also visit the historically significant City Hall or see Mon Repos palace. Mon Repos Palace is situated on top of Analipsis hill in the area of Kanoni. The remains of the ancient town of Corfu, which have been found opposite to the palace, make archaeologists believe that Mon Repos was built right on the site where the ancient city of Corfu used to be. The palace is surrounded by magnificent park where thousands of tourists visit each year.
