Discover Greece’s culture and heritage through an amazing journey through time and magical sceneries. Our country’s countless archaeological sites and monuments cover the period from the Paleolithic era to more recent times; while seventeen sites have been inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO.
Those are: Acropolis, Delfi, Mycenae and Tiryns, Delos, Mystras, Olympia, the medieval town of Rhodes, monasteries in Chios, old town of Corfu, Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments in Thessaloniki, Pythagoreion and Heraion of Samos, Sanctuary of Asklepios of Epidaurus, The Historic Centre (Chorá) with the Monastery of Saint-John the Theologian and the Cave of the Apocalypse on the Island of Pátmos, Temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae, Meteora and Mount Athos.
Athens alone is home to 148 theatrical stages, more than any other city in the world, including the ancient Odeon of Herodes Atticus, home to the Athens Festival. The highlight of all the museums is the New Acropolis Museum with a total area of 25,000 square meters, an exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters, ten times more than that of the old museum on the Hill of the Acropolis.
