- The great Colossus of Rhodes is one of the Seven Wonders of the Old World, which was erected in the 3rd Century. But unfortunately today there remains only its ruins, as it was destroyed by a large earthquake in the forthcoming centuries. The Greeks have contemplated rebuilding it as it would draw a lot of people’s attention towards travelling to see it. Also, the city of Olympia where the Olympic Games were first created & held as a tradition is also a widely visited city. But more or less of its ruins are only existent today, yet tourists flock to go visit this ancient city.
- The Acropolis and the Pantheon in Athens are also structures which date back to several centuries. These are still acknowledged as marvelous structures and are considered to be heritage sites. The Island of Rhodes and the port city of Volos are often visited due to the beautiful range of sunsets & scenic locations in these regions. Overall Greece would be a fantastic destination for travelers on a budget & yet who would love to see some of the most ancient structures present on the planet.
