Thebes (Greek: Thiva) is a city in Boeotia, central Greece.

Understand

Thebes is an unassuming modern town built on the site of the ancient city of the same name which played a dominant role over Classic Greece during the 4th century BC until its destruction by Alexander in 335 BC.

The only reason to make a stop in Thebes is to visit its archaeological museum, one of the most important in Greece.
