    Here is a list of what I think are the most important monuments and remnants of various civilizations in Greece. This order is just as the locations come to mind, not in order of importance:

    Athens: Acropolis Museum including the Parthenon: beautiful example of architectural proportion, symmetry, and design

    Ancient Corinth: important ancient city, and the Corinth Canal, an amazing feat of engineering

    Crete: island location ancient ruins of the Minoan Palace of Knossos Palace, remnants of a unique civilization

    Mycenae Ancient city site, home to many civilizations over thousands of years

    Delphi: Large area of ancient ruins, special for the Temple of Apollo, the home of the Oracle of Delphi

    Rhodes: island location with both The Acropolis of Rhodes, and "Old Town", said to be one of the largest medieval walled cities still in existance; exciting history of the Crusading Knights Hospitaliers and Templar

    Santorini; island location, excavations at Akrotiri of an ancient minoan village with a very civilized lifestyle covered in a volcanic eruption around 1630 BC triggering stories of the lost city of Atlantis

    Delos: island location, Sacred Island next to Mykonos, many ruins and museum, very interesting history

    Patmos: island location, St. John Cave Of The Apocolypse, said to be the cave where John the Apostle saw visions that were recorded as the "Book of Revelations"
