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 Delphi, Greece, 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"
