Top 10 Most Popular Greek & Roman Ruins According to Visited

The travel app Visited by Arriving In High Heels Corporation has released a list of the top 10 Greek and Roman ruins to visit. The data is based on over 1.7 million users who have marked which ancient sites they have been to.

Visited, available on iOS or Android, allows users to mark off where they’ve been and plan dream getaways based on travel lists, experiences, personalized travel map and inspirational photos. Picking a travel destination just got a lot easier with the Visited app.

According to Visited, the most popular Greek and Roman ruins around the globe are found mostly in Rome, Athens and area. “While it is not surprising that the top list includes sites in Rome and Athens, what was interesting that Bath, England made it to the top 10 list of most visited Greek/Roman ruins, and that Turkey’s Ephesus did not,” explained the founder of the popular travel app, Anna Kayfitz.
