First of all, modern Greece is a unified country under a single government. Ancient Greece ranged from democracies (Athens, Thebes) to oligarchies (Sparta) and monarchies (Thessaly, Epirus, Macedonia). Furthermore, ancient Greeks colonized lands that are now outside of Greek borders, such as southern Italy, France, Turkey, Cyprus and some parts of the Russian shores. The Greek language has also evolved, and people now speak Modern Greek. Spelling has remained the same as it was in ancient Greek, but pronounciation has changed.

There are many, but I won't speculate! To begin with, Ancient Greece's Olympic Games were only for men. Nowadays, that's not true, otherwise Shawn Johnson wouldn't be as well known :). The political structure is not the same anymore, either. You know those pictures of Greece with the dome-shaped houses, all white? Greece only has a few cities that have those houses. And, the society wasn't, well, as modern as it is now! But there are many beautiful, breath-taking historical sites you can visit. Both modern Greece and Ancient Greece are fascinating to learn about, you should visit Greece! -from an 11 year old Greek :)

A broader view:

The ancient Greek world was comprised o a couple of thousand independent city-states scattered around the Mediterranean and Black Seas. These cities were linked by cultural background and expedient alliances, but were regularly at war with each other. Modern Greece is a single country in the eastern Mediterranean, but still has is internal infighting.

The first woman to win at the Olympic games was Kyniska, a woman from Sparta in 396 BC. Women also had their own Heraean games dedicated to Hera, the wife of Zeus. The Heraean was the female version of the Olympic games and took place every four years. Homer's Odyssey and Xenophon's Symposium describe women playing with balls, driving chariots, swimming, and Wrestling. Running, as the Heraea tested, was also very prevalent.

Modern Greece is a single country but the people whether north in Macedonia or south in Crete, still identify by their states which are still defined by ancient natural boundaries. When they fought amongst themselves it was usually a push to extend boundaries or for the more prominent states, to gain hegemony (leadership and first place) over the Greek states.
