Pharos, Greece

In 331 BC, Alexander the Great founded the harbor city, now in modern Greece, on the ruins of an Egyptian town named Rhakotis. Today, Pharos serves as a popular resort for upscale vacationers from all over the world. It's also a favorite base for international dive companies that attempt to bring up 2,000-year-old statues, coins and building ruins. For more information, go to www.greece.org
