Ancient Greece Road Trip
The people and culture of Ancient Greece did as much to form the world we live in today as any civilization in history. Greeks were among the first to advance what would become known as the scientific method. They recognized creativity as a major contribution to culture and thus elevated art to the public conscience. They nurtured some of the world’s first widely-read writers, and even laid the groundwork for modern democracy. Oh, and they built some massive, elaborate and durable buildings, from theaters and stadiums to temples and other sanctuaries.
One could road trip around ancient Greece for months without running out of things to see, do and learn. Here are some suggested stops to get you started.
