Name one contrast between athens & sparta.
One contrast is that the modern city of Athens is huge and vibrant and attracts many tourists. Although our guide when I visited Greece was from Sparta, she did not take us to her home city because there wasn't much to see there.
A contrast between the two cities in ancient times was the difference between the warlike culture in one city and the democratic, philosophical, and architectural components of the other.
