Seven Wonders of the World

The Original Seven Wonders 1 of 11

I’ll bet you’ve at least heard of the Seven Wonders of the World, but did you know that the original seven wonders were famous because they were a list of the seven most notable sites to Ancient Greeks in their world?

I bet you also didn’t know that the original seven wonders are not the current seven wonders, which have been changed to reflect the most notable destinations in the modern world, or that there’s a new list of seven wonders waiting for approval. (Really? Can’t we leave well enough alone?)

Check out the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the list of New 7 Wonders, and find out how you can help choose the New7Wonders Cities edition!
