Here are only a few of the richest gifts ancient Greece has given to the world that still impact us today. • It was home to the first recognized historian. • It is the birthplace of world-famous mathematicians. • It is the foundation of Western philosophic thought. • Its founders designed the initial concept of democracy. • It was the first place to bring trial by jury into the courtroom. • It educated and entertained us with mythology. • It brought us the origins of theater. • It created the Olympic games. • It introduced beautiful architecture. • It shared with the world an incredible collection of sculptures and pottery. • It brought us the explanation of true tranquility. • It gave us the most comprehensive, meaningful word for “happiness.” • It gave us greek language as the basis for the technical terms of all sciences.

One of the best places to see in the world. Not much to say due to just how fantastic the architecture is, especially for its time. Being the birth place of democracy already adds a great bonus for history but it just feels like the best place to go to in a short trip to Greece due to its beauty and links to the ancient times.

An extraordinary piece of human culture that withstood all those centuries. Even in the hot Greek summer sun it is a pleasure to adventure to the top and see those sites. On top of that, the view on the city is superb

A must in Athens, of course. Maybe bring a bottle of water and a hat because it can get really hot and you can't (I think) but water up there. Oh, and bring practical, closed-toe shoes, some stones are a bit slippery. But it's great up there and it's view of and from the city!

Amazing, must see if visiting Athens. Apart from the ancient buildings there is also a great view of the city. Empty during corona pandemic but when things go back to normal I would recommend going earlier in the day to avoid big crowds.
