    Corinth - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Between the Greek mainland and Peloponnes are the extensive ruins of ancient Corinth. Of the city's former magnificence, only a few Doric columns of the 6th century Apollo Temple have survived. Due to its favourable location and fertile soil, three thousand years ago during the Neolithic period the first settlements were established in this region. 146 B.C. marked the end of Classical Corinth. The Romans devastated and plundered the ancient metropolis and enslaved its people and for almost a hundred years the ruins were uninhabited but, due to Caesar, new life returned to the city. Surrounded by the pure, wild beauty of Nature, the ruins blend harmoniously into the magnificence of the surrounding landscape. From a medieval fortress, in the distance there are the remains of an ancient Corinthian port and even today shipping plays an important role in the everyday life of this ancient city.

    Delphi - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Set in the picturesque, deeply fissured hillside of the Parnass, Delphi is where over 2000 years ago the Greeks sought spiritual advice from the god Apollo, who they believed spoke to them through an oracle. Delphi was home to the Amphictyonic League, the most important of the Greek city states, and was also the location of the Pythian Games. Two eagles dispatched by Zeus from the end of the world met at the foot of Mount Parnassus in Delphi, thus creating the `omphalos' or `navel of the world'. It was hoped that the priestess attendant at the site, Pythia, would impart the will of God which she expressed through her `raging mouth', in ecstasy. This idyllic location, which includes the holy temple of Athena Pronaia, has retained its mystique right up to the present day.

    Athens - Travel Video - DVD.
    Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Athens is a lively city set in historic surroundings. Likavitt?s is a two hundred and seventy-seven meter-high limestone rock that dominates the city. It towers up above several buildings and on its summit there's a small chapel. The capital of Greece has a long history. It was founded three thousand five hundred years ago and had its golden age during Greek Antiquity under the democratic rule of Perikles. At that time the symbol of one Europe's most influential cultures was created, Greek's national sanctuary, the Acropolis. It took nine years to build the great temple of the goddess Athene, The Parthenon, that was completed in 438 B.C. Unique among all other Greek temples, with its imposing appearance and artistic decoration this temple signified the great influence and power of ancient Athens. With its striking majestic appearance and timeless elegance it was more magnificent than any other building in Greece. Six female figures, the Karyatides, support the southern hall of the Ionic Temple of Erechtheion that stands on sacred ground close to the main temple. Since the beginning of the 4th century the mythical kings Kekrops and Erechtheu were worshiped here until the city's subsequent decline. Legend has it that during a contest between the gods Poseidon left the imprint of his trident on a rock upon which Athene created an olive tree. Throughout its history the temple served many purposes and the Turks, somewhat disrespectfully, transformed the Erechtheion into a harem. The evening sun descends slowly across the ruins of Ancient Greece. The marble of the temple shines golden as though to thank the gods for creating this remarkable city. A city in which both antiquity and the present unite: a symbol of the Occident.

    Acropolis - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. For more than 2,500 years a landmark and symbol of one of the most influential European cultures, the Acropolis, has towered above the rooftops of Athens. It took nine years to build the great temple of the goddess Athene, known as The Parthenon, that was completed in 438 B.C. Unique among all other Greek temples, with its imposing appearance and artistic decoration, the Parthenon signified the great influence and power of ancient Athens. Just a few metres from the Athens Temple, the Acropolis Museum contains numerous outstanding archaeological treasures that have been discovered in this vicinity. The majority of the exhibits date back to the 5th and 6th centuries, a richly golden time in the culture of ancient Greece. Since 1878, the museum has exhibited several ancient sculptures of the Acropolis in addition to various well preserved sections of the Parthenon's magnificent frieze. Throughout the centuries, the temples and buildings that are situated on Acropolis Rock have had an amazing influence on both artists and architects alike. The unique cultural value of these imposing ruins has once again become of vital significance in the home town of the Olympic Games. Thus, the ancient Acropolis will continue to be the `Cradle of Occidental Culture' and will illuminate the night sky of Athens forever.

The capital was mainly built by Frenchmen during the reign of Napoleon, this is why it suggests a Mediterranean spirit, as if we were walking on the French Riviera. Near the capital, there is the symbol of the island, the Vlacherna monastery, standing in the water. Corfu is filled with natural beauties. Kassiopi is a charming fishing village, while Paleokastritsa is a place famous for its sea caverns. And finally there is the Channel of Love in Sidari, a channel formed by whimsical cliffs.
