There were many places of prominence in ancient Greece which have later been excavated to gain more knowledge about how things would have been in the ancient times. One of the most prominent places in Ancient Greece was The Acropolis.

The temple of Zeus and the temple of Hera were amongst the most important places in ancient Olympia. The temple of Zeus was built first and in ancient times that was the place where Olympic winners would be felicitated at the temple of Zeus.

Later, when the Olympics for women was started, the female winners were felicitated at H=the temple of Hera. Both these temples were of great importance in Ancient Greece.

Ancient Greece Places: Troy

Troy is the ancient Greek city-state which witnessed the great Trojan War. Though there is some debate over this matter but the current site of Troy which showcases the remains of the ancient city-state of Troy has pieces of evidence which point to the conclusion that Troy was actually the site where the Trojan War took place.

Troy has hence become an important ancient Greece site.Other Greek sites which were considered important in ancient Greece were Crete, Delphi, Delos, Dimini, Marathon, Mycenae, and Thermos.
