16 Amazing Historical Places in the World to Visit at Least Once 

There’s no shortage of historical places in the world to add to your bucket list, but which ones are the best and where should you focus your time if there’s so many?  

The first has to be one of my favourite ancient sites which I’ve had the pleasure of visiting twice now. It’s really a magical place but like many in this list is in danger of being overrun.

Stonehenge, England

The pyramids of Giza are probably the most famous landmark that most people will think about when combining the words ‘ancient’ and ‘bucket list’ and that’s for good reason.

Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

Perhaps Turkey wouldn’t spring to mind when thinking about ancient Roman and Greek ruins but you’ll find a surprising number of them there.

Ephesus – Turkey

The infamous concentration camp in Poland that was built by the Nazis in the second world war may not seem like a great place to visit by many but it’s an incredibly important historical site.

Auschwitz – Poland

Skara Brae is a really well preserved ancient site in the far north of Scotland on the Okney Isles.  It’s actually older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt.

Skara Brae – Orkney, Scotland

It’s almost 2000 years old, built around 70-80AD and although it’s ruined now it’s still an incredibly impressive piece of architecture and somewhere that teaches us a lot about the Roman times.

Ancient Colosseum – Rome, Italy
