A Visit to Historical Greece

The Parthenon in Athens
When I think of Greece, I envision its theaters, gladiators, temples, museums, arts, the place of gods and goddesses, and much more historical architectural monuments and cultures. I am also recalling the games and The Olympics in its stadiums. Many of the cities and islands of Greece are named after their gods or goddesses. For example, Athens which is the capital and largest city in Greece is related to the patron goddess Athena.

What can a tourist do in Greece? You can visit The Acropolis hill (acro - edge, polis - city), so called the "Sacred Rock" of Athens, is the most important site of the city and constitutes one of the most recognizable monuments of the world. In Athens, one can also see a mixture of old mansions, well-preserved ones and other worn down by time. Luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns. Information on Hotels in Greece.
