List 25: 25 Modern Cities That Are Actually Built on Ancient Ruins

"Throughout the world, you can find a handful of cities that have a fascinating history. Some civilizations built new cities on top of ancient ruins while others grew near historic landmarks.
Many of these cities realize that showcasing and respecting their past provides the key to preserving their priceless artifacts. Having ancient ruins in your city not only adds honor but also gives a boost to the economy. Every year, millions of tourists travel around the world to see these breathtaking monuments for themselves."
"Cities such as Athens, Rome, and Paris have refused to completely modernize so they can pay tribute to their heritage. As such, they have served as popular tourist destinations for decades."
