This outstanding drone video by AirVuz contributor pasxos30 features two of the best-known ruins sites of the Golden Age of Athens, the period between the Second Persian War and the Peloponnesian War in the 5th century BC when the city-state of Athens was in its heyday.  The more well-known of the two is the Athens Acropolis, a citadel built upon a hill in the center of the city.  The second spot is the Temple of Poseidon, which is situated at the tip of Cape Sounion, at the southern end of the Attica Peninsula south of Athens.

The Agrafas are a chain of mountains in Central Greece.  The range is an extension of the Pindus mountains, which run over Northern Greece and into the neighboring country of Albania.  The mountains are dotted with gorgeous lakes and valleys and many small towns whose red brick roofs present an amazing visual appearance.  In this video, contributor Icarus Aerial Filming took a drone on a Sunday trip through the mountains, providing us with a marvelous bird's eye view of an area in the heart of Greece.

In this video, top AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Badios filmed Katerina Soldatou doing her "Greece Has Soul" aerial dance over the Corinthian Canal, one of the most well-known sights in central Greece.  The canal was built in the late 1800's to connect the Saronic Gulf and the Gulf of Corinth, which sit on opposite sides of the Isthmus of Corinth connecting the Peloponnese Peninsula with the mainland of Greece.  While the canal is too narrow for shipping, it is big enough for small boats.

Of the many Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, probably the least well known are the Saronic Islands.  These sit in the Saronic Gulf, an inlet of the Aegean formed by the Attica Peninsula to the north and the Peloponnese Peninsula to the west.  In this drone video by Aerial_Greece, you'll get a bird's eye view of some of the top spots in the gulf, including the island of Aegina, a monastery atop one of the gulf's many tiny islets, and the wreck of the Mediterranean Sky, a ship which ran aground in the Eleusis Bay here in 1953.

Euboea is Greece's second largest island (after Crete) but is less well known than its cousin to the south.  It's a long, narrow piece of land which lies on the east side of the Euboean Gulf from the mainland of Central Greece.  It is believed that the island was once actually part of the mainland and became separated by an earthquake at some point.  In this drone video by contributor Chris Ikarus, you'll get a bird's eye view of a town called Eretria, which lies in the middle of the island's western coast.

Aigosthena was an ancient fortified port city on Greece's Gulf of Corinth.  Situated at the foot of Mt. Cithaeron, the city was part of the state of Megaris.  Located about 50 km (around 30 mi.) northwest of Athens, the well-preserved ruins consist of a citadel tower and portions of the wall which once surrounded it.  The site dates to the early 4th century BC, shortly after the conclusion of the Peloponnesian War.  Check out this amazing historical landmark from above in this excellent drone video by DRONEAS GR.

Greece's Temple of Posdeidon is one of the most important landmarks of the Golden Age of Athens, the roughly 50 year period ushered in by the repulsion of the second Persian invasion in 480-79 BC.  As the leading Greek power, Athens was able to extract funds from its "satellites" to undertake massive building projects.  Like the one you'll see in this drone video by Viajes Los Planet: the Temple of Poseidon.  Located at the southern tip of the triangle-shaped Attica Peninsula, the ruins stand 60 meters (about 200 ft.) over the water.
