    Might I make a pretty decent substitution for Stonehenge? The Orkney Islands, off the north coast of Scotland, are packed with history. From the chambered tombs at Maeshowe and the Tomb of the Eagles, to the obligatory stone circle of the Ring of Brodgar, the wonderfully preserved 8000 year old village at Skara Brae, and a tonne of Viking history as well.

  • holidays to egypt

    All top destinations suggested here are really very very famous and amazing places to go for a fantastic holidays.Specially Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx.

    Ho yes, nevermind Stonhenge, go to Jerusalem!

    I so love Venice Italy too, my favourite town in the whole world.

    I used to live in Versailles for 2 years, my second favorite town. This palace is really sexy… I can't guess why…

    And the third is Istambul, so " like home "

    For the greek statues in the Louvre, in fact, except the Venus of Milo, all the statues are copies.

    Perhaps copies from the british museum ones, I don't know.

    But there are no genuine greek statues in the Louvre.

    Nice to see that you have included Taj Mahal in your list of historical travel destinations. Angkor wat, the oldest temple in Cambodia is really beautiful and I liked that place very much.

  • elvis

    There are far more historical and impressive castles in Europe than Neuschwanstein Castle, which for some reason is the most well known and photographed (pictures in #10). It isn't even that old, it was started in the mid 1800's and wasn't finished until the late 1800's… my great grandmother was alive in the late 1800's so I don't consider that to be very old, at least by European standards. Having been there, I can say it is beautiful and scenic, but still pretty modern. It wasn't Medieval, it was just a super fancy private residence for the king at that time, and other than him living there on occasion, nothing really happened there. More interesting than the castle is the story of King Ludwig himself.

    Out of all these destination. According to me European castles are worth seeing. The one in Bavaria germany is just breathtaking castle I have ever seen. Neuschwanstein castle is just like a castles in fairy tale. It is the only place in Germany which I always would like to see and explore.

  • Machu Picchu

    The Inca citadel of Machu Picchu (Now one of the new 7th wonders of the world) is one of the most important tourist attractions in Peru. Discovered in 1911 by the American explorer, Hiram Bingham, this city is considering one of the most extraordinary examples of scenic architecture in the whole world. If you want to enjoy more pictures about Machu Picchu you can visit the next link.

      I agree, This list is only for the rich and safe thinking travelers, that’s why there is not places in the middle east (war zones) mentioned like Jerasulam, Syria (Damascus, Aleppo), Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon (Beirut, which is stunning), Palestine (Jericho) ect. All these places are 5,000 – 11,000BC. Anyhow wasn’t the overated Stonehenge built in 3000 BC to 2000 BC where as Wayland’s Smithy was built between 3590 and 3550 BC. Surely Stonehenge can’t be a hot spot for tourists, there’s a bit of history there but shouldn’t be mentioned as a travel destination. Not like people travel there from all over the world… I also think a place in France should be mentioned as a lot of the older generation like to travel there! Anyhow the world has lovely places in every continent. My personal favourite would be Madagascar because of the wildlife.

  • susan

    angkor watt was built by the dravidians a thousand years ago..i think if you ignore this fact you are ignoring the immense influence of this culture in asia..including the written script in thailand etc
    ..i agree about stonehenge..it really should not be there…there are many other more impressive historic sites

  • Persian

    But where is the Persepolis of Iran(former Persia)?

  • Anastasia

    I love this list! I’ve been in a few of this places.But next time you should include -The Castle in Niemodlin. It has very interesting story around it there is lots of stuff going on .Apparently there was 10 truck of gold hidden in the castle and some time ago they ever discover new secret tunnels. For more information Check out Niemodlin Website.
