Often credited as the birthplace of Western civilisation, the enduring cultural legacy of the Ancient Greeks stands alone. Great scholars, philosophers, statesman, architects, poets and playwrights built their reputation in the cities of the ancient Mediterranean world and their work has been celebrated by a succession of civilisations ever since, not least the Romans. Just as James 'Athenian' Stuart and Nicholas Revett found on their rediscovery of Greece in the mid-eighteenth century, travellers are still inspired by Greece's innumerable archaeological treasures, from sacred and secluded Delphi to the commanding Athenian Acropolis. Later, the orthodox church would come to dominate society in Greece, creating in its wake some of the most spectacular Christian sites in the world.
