I would have to say Tikal in Guatemala although Palenque in Chiapas would be a close second. Spent New Year´s Eve on top of a pyramid in 2000 with one of my best buds and his GF. When dawn broke it was almost surreal. :tu:

My favourite are the Tudor ruins dotted around England. There are many English Heritage sites packed with history from that period from Castles to Manor houses and they are really beautiful.

I loved Greece's (Isles too) sites and history! I was amazed at the distance traveled to receive an answer from the Oracle. It was a fir bit with wheels and a engine!

The only two I've actually visited were the Great Wall (BaDaLing) and the Coliseum.  I'd choose the Coliseum as the more inspiring.

I must say it has to Olympus in Greece.  I visited some 5 years ago and what an amazing place.  It is made better because you are not roped off from the site and can actually see the ruins.  Great place.

I would like to visit Machu Picchu.  Its amazing that they built that city on top of a mountain plus they built several roads too it so it was quit the center of trade.

There are other place I would like to see like the Egyptian Pyramids or the great wall of China.
