Greece gave the world democracy, Western philosophy, classical architecture, geometry, drama, and comedy. In short, it gave the world Western civilization. Then came 2, 000 years of relative silence.

But while Greece is no longer the single most important place on Earth, it remains one of the nicest to visit. Let's start with Athens, where much of antiquity still remains (somewhat) intact. The world-famous Acropolis is at least temporarily transformative in its ability to humble - you mean humans did that when? - while other ruins strewn about the city also inspire.

The Mediterranean islands of Crete and Santorini are equally renowned for providing unforgettable resort vacations in original storybook locations (original as in "the first").
