Ancient Landmarks, Greece

From the haughty magnificence of Athens' Acropolis to the skeletal remains of Knossos, the Cretan lair of the legendary Minotaur, Greece's rugged landscape is littered with ancient ruins. Top temples include the Parthenon, a stirring symbol of ancient glory; oracular Delphi, perched above the sparkling Gulf of Corinth; and Olympia, home to the first Olympic Games. The acoustically perfect theatre of Epidavros sits alongside the mystical Sanctuary of Asclepius, an ancient healing centre, whilst off-shore, the Sanctuary of Apollo marks the birthplace of the mythical god on the island of Delos.
