How did the geography of ancient Greece cause it to separate into independent communities?

Greece us a very mountainous peninsula, nearly surrounded by water. It was extremely difficult to go from community to another, so each community grew up independently.

Greece's main geographical feature is steep, rugged mountains.
Communities developed between mountains. People couldn't cross mountains very easily to unite with other communities. So each city developed its own culture and government, independent of other cities.
