|1||Temple of Hephaestus||1-10||1,620,000||1,200,000||1,500,000||25|
|Hephaestus was the only God said to have been thrown out of Olympus for his physical imperfection. This did not stop Zeus from enjoying the fruits of his mythic labor, however: The God of the Forge labored away creating lightning bolts for his father.|
|The ancient town was surrounded by a cemetery. It was so massive when the modern Athens Metro was built; workers uncovered nearly one thousand tombs from the 4th and 5th century - with many more tombs rumored to be under downtown Athens.|
|The name of the famous flea market district brings new meaning to the religious fervor some bring to bargain-hunting. The literal translation is "Little Monastery."|
|In a nod to the ancient meeting modern in latter-day Athens, the site of the 1834 palace now features free high-speed Internet access.|
|The ancient Greeks used precious metals to honor the gods. This is particularly apparent in the Acropolis, where the huge statue of Athena is crafted entirely from ivory and pure gold.|
|6||Odeon of Herodes Atticus||51-60|
|The ancient theater - where such luminaries as Frank Sinatra performed centuries later - was built by a Greek aristocrat in 161 AD to honor his dead wife. Legend has it, however, that the upstanding citizen also arranged for her death.|
|During the ancient Panathenea Festival, a procession journeyed through Athens and into the Acropolis, where an enormous wool robe was placed on the huge statue of Athena. No word on why they assumed she might be cold.|
|The ancient stadium made modern history by hosting the first Olympic Games in 1896 - which seems fairly ancient as well, until one considers that the stadium first hosted an athletic event in 566 BC.|
|9||Theatre of Dionysus||81-90|
|The oldest theater in the world was dedicated to the god of wine. It premiered, however, the sober tragedies of such heavy-hitters of the classical era as Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripdes, and Aristophanes.|
|10||Temple of Olympian Zeus||91-100|
|The great temple was abandoned before completion as the classical Greeks did not believe in building on such a grand scale. The scale did not disturb the Emperor Hadrian, who included in his completed temple a giant gold and ivory status of Zeus - beside an equally large statue of himself.|
|The 38 acre garden was designed in 1840 by the well-meaning Friedrich Schmidt, who imported over 500 varieties of plants as well as peacocks, ducks and turtles. Unfortunately, he did not consider the dry Mediterranean climate, and most of his careful plantings did not survive.|
|12||National Archaelogical Museum||111-120|
|In a fine example of forethought, the museum not only shut its doors during World War II, but also sealed priceless antiquities in special protective boxes and buried them to avoid looting and destruction. The museum re-opened after the war with the exhibits preserved.|
