Athens, the most beautiful destination selected by travellers of the classical era, must have filled the tourists' souls with ecstasy. It can, however, hardly be said what it was like and what sights the classical tourists visited, but we know that the Hephaisteion, temple of Hephaistos exerted a great attraction on visitors. It is certain that tourism on a modest scale existed in ancient Greece.
