The Parthenon atop the Acropolis in Athens is number ONE!!!!
That should be followed by the Giza Pyramids, Abu Simbel, Valley of the Kings, Ephesus and Delphi in any order.
Have done them all and Athens has to be my number one because it is the cradle of Western civilisation and democracy.
Have been to Athens about 8 times, and the sight of the Acropolis takes my breath away every time.

Maybe not the actual 7 wonders but how many still exist!!!

You forgot the Roman Forum and the Collosium (sp) pretty awesomly old and spectacular!

I think Giant's Causeway, in Northern Ireland, is called the eighth wonder of the world. There weren't too many tourists, and the trip up is breathtaking. The site itself is interesting - thousands and thousands of naturally formed hectagon rocks jetting up from the ground. I wouldn't say they took my breath away, but the scenery around it and the lack of crowds made it more than a worthwhile visit.

I agree with tway, as natural wonders go it is hard to beat the causway. Usually not very crowded because it is in Northern Ireland, get there while the sun's going down. Northern Ireland in general is an undiscovered gem, get there before the tourists do.

Hi tway,

An eye-sore yes!!
