These are the best mystic meccas some of which are actual archeological sites you can actually visit in 2022! 

Mt. Olympus- Greece 

Mt. Olympus is said to be the home of the 12 Greek gods. Olympus is a protected national park and an essential sanctuary for rare flora and fauna. Well-marked trails traversed the majestic mountain and are relatively easy to climb if you’re in the mood for mountaineering. 

Where to stay: Ktima Faki is the nearest and most highly-rated cozy retreat you can find. 

Site of the Trojan War- Troy, Turkey 

Scholars were convinced the Trojan War was entirely a Greek myth for centuries. But in the late 1800s, archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann uncovered what historians believe are the remnants of Troy near Turkey’s northwest coast. Today the 4,000-year-old ruins are a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Where to stay: If you want to have a very memorable photo of the prop horse from the 2004 film Troy starring Brad Pitt, you can visit the boardwalk in nearby Canakkale. The Helen Hotel is the perfect place to visit both sites. 

Treasure Island- British Virgin Islands

The world-renowned Treasure Island is a small reefy spot that forms in the British Virgin Islands, located just by a rocky formation called Dead Man’s Chest. 


Where to stay: It’s now a popular destination spot where you can snorkel to your heart’s content and have the best vacation in the Caribbean at the Sebastian’s On The Beach Hotel 

Cyclops Rocks- Sicily, Italy 

Along the real-life Cyclops Riviera that stretches from Catania to Acireale along Sicily’s gorgeous eatern coast., you’ll find gorgeous citrus orchards, quaint seaside towns and looming Mt. Etna, home of Cyclops and Vulcan. 

Where to stay: To see Cyclops Rocks, you can ride a cable car to the top of Mount etna, then take a special terrain vehicle to the crater area. 

Isle of Sodor- United Kingdom 

Isle of Sodor sounds ultra-serious like a setting in Dungeons of Dragons but it’s actually the setting of the long-running UK kids TV show, Thomas the Tank Engine. This ancient Gaelic island is just located in the Irish Sea between the Isle of Man and the English mainland.
