Ancient Sites in Europe

* Plovdiv, Bulgaria
Plovdiv is one of Europe's oldest cities, its history reaching farther back than even Rome's or Constantinople's. This Bulgarian city boasts layers of history, exemplified in Thracian fortifications and Ottoman mosques.

* The Parthenon, Athens, Greece
The remains of a temple to the Greek goddess Athena, located on the Acropolis overlooking the city of Athens, the Parthenon is considered to be the finest example of Doric-style construction.

* Top Ancient Rome Sites, Rome, Italy
The Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Forum are just a few of the glories that remain of Ancient Rome. Most of these ancient sites are located within Rome's historic center.

* Grotto of Tiberius, Sperlonga, Italy
Tiberius, the ancient Roman emperor, loved the sea. He spent time at a villa next to a seaside cave south of Sperlonga, on Italy's west coast.

* Trier, Germany
The oldest city in Germany, founded as a Roman colony in 16 B.C., became the favored residence of several Roman emperors and was even called “Roma Secunda”, the second Rome.

* Mérida, Spain
Mérida is home to Spain's most spectacular and best preserved Roman ruins, including a Roman theater and amphitheater where you can see performances during the summer months.

* London Stone, London, England
This fragment of a 3,000 year old piece of limestone was once considered to be the symbolic heart of London.

* Heart of Neolithic Orkney, Scotland
The Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage site includes two very different stone circles, an ancient chambered burial mound defaced with Viking graffitti, a 5,000 year old village that looks like occupants just moved out, and a number of unexcavated mounds and sites.

* Brú na Boinne - Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, Ireland
Visiting some the ancient monuments in the Boyne Valley is a must for every visitor to Ireland, but nowhere can the past be experienced as impressively as within the central chamber of Newgrange.
