Visit Sparta and/or the Pelopponnese.
This picture is of Sparta. It's tough to believe that someplace as historically significant can dwindle into... this. That's probably a good lesson, though.
Sparta itself isn't that exciting. It's a sleepy town and the ruins look like the ruins of a Greek city, which you'll probably have seen plenty of by the time you're thinking of going there. But it's set at the very foot of some fabulous mountains, in fruit orchards and hills and it's some of the most beautiful scenery we saw in Greece. The tavernas were charming and the people very friendly, and a big plus is that it isn't one of the 'main' tourist attractions, so it wouldn't be as crowded, even in season.
Address: In the south of Greece.
