Legendary Machu Picchu
Built into steep green hillsides and surrounded by soaring peaks and thundering rivers, it’s one of the most famous and enchanting archaeological sites in the world. Machu Picchu, often mistakenly referred to as the “Lost City of the Incas,” is actually believed to have been built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti in the 15th century. Today it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site that attracts visitors from all over the world to marvel at the feats of engineering that have endured for centuries. Hike the traditional Inca Trail to this spectacular site, or take in views of the Peruvian Andes while arriving by train.

Treasures of Tikal
With impressive stone pyramids rising above the canopy of the surrounding rainforest, Tikal retains its grandeur, even almost two millennia after its peak. As the capital of one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya, this city was a bustling center of agriculture, trade, and politics in the pre-Columbian world. Today the ruins are preserved in Guatemala’s first national park, and thousands of extant structures continue to be excavated and researched.

Angkor Wat, the City of Temples
Khmer for “City of Temples,” Angkor Wat is an apt title as this Cambodian temple complex is one of the largest religious monuments in the world. Initially built as a monument to Hindu gods, today it serves as a Buddhist temple. The intricately designed and decorated structures have survived multiple wars, and many damaged pieces have been carefully restored. Explore the surrounding rainforest by foot or bike, and take in the incredible detail of this iconic architectural wonder.

Classical Treasures
The ancient citadel at the Athenian Acropolis remains a center of wonder and cultural significance for the Western world. This hilltop remains steeped in history, holding the great Doric Parthenon, the detailed Erechtheion, the Ionic Temple of Athena Nike, and many other structures. A small-ship cruise through the Greek islands demands a stop in Athens to climb the acropolis and marvel at the ancient works that still influence Western art, architecture, and design today.

Marvel at the Great Wall
Or, more accurately, the Great Walls: the term “Great Wall” actually refers to a series of walls and earthen fortifications stretching across the historical northern borders of China. The oldest sections of the wall date as early as 700 BCE, while newer and better-known portions were constructed as recently as the 17th century. The wall served as defense and border control, and also facilitated immigration and trade along the silk road. Today, its impressive defensive system is considered one of the most incredible architectural feats in history.
