Essential temples to visit by yacht

Because of the seafaring nature of Greek civilizations, the majority of important archaeological sites and museums (including in what is nowadays Turkey) is ideally located to explore via sailing holidays.
Anchoring alone in a bay overlooked by a temple is de rigueur, and even if there are tourists, the coaches will have left the site deserted usually well before the end of the afternoon.
