The Acropolis in Athens, Greece, came in second after the Angkor site in Cambodia on a list composed recently by American news network CNN.

The list was composed following the announcement of the most expensive vacation of all time that was recently purchased by two people (a Chinese student and an Italian businessman) for 1.5 million dollars from luxury website VeryFirstTo.com.

The “vacation” is a two-year luxury expedition to all 962 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, “from dazzling underwater ecosystems to the ruins of ancient civilizations, otherworldly natural landscapes to more modern works of architecture.”

CNN rounded up 20 of the network’s favorite sites. “We’ve rounded up 20 sites that we’d be looking forward to most if we were going on the trip,” CNN’s Sarah Reid said.
