    Pretty self-explanatory, really.

    I've been to the Hagia Sophia and stood on the ruins of the Temple of Artemis. Have yet to go to NYC so I haven't seen the obvious ones like Statue of Liberty and UN

    The Great Wall, The Effel Tower, The Sistine Chapel and the Statue of Liberty.

    And of course the OP Apostolic Palace-- I should really go tell them what Firaxis thinks of them.

    I've been to Australia, Mauritius, Tanzania and Kenya, Singapore, Malaysia and a ton of places in India. But no wonders there, so 0:(.

    I've seen Broadway, Chichen Itza, Hollywood, the Statue of Liberty, and the UN. I guess by some stretch this list could include Rock and Roll. I'm hopeful that by the end of next summer this list will have all of the French wonders included.

    Eiffel Tower, Parthenon, Sistine Chapel, Apostolic Palace, Statue of Liberty, UN, Broadway, Notre Dame, Stonehenge, Versailles, and the Pentagon is practically in my backyard.

    edit: vander below prompted me to add Wall, Globe and Ox to the list.

    Also, I've actually been to the isle of Rhodos and at least saw where the Colossus once stood, if that counts. I can't remember if we passed through Delphi or not.

    Also walked around The Coliseum,which really should be a wonder in the game instead of just a building.

    I think we've all seen the Internet ;).

    For me... Stonehenge, Eiffel Tower, Versailles, Notre Dame, Kremlin, Oracle (site of), Parthenon, SoL, UN, Broadway, Pentagon, Cristo Redentor. Oh, and Wall St, Globe Theatre and Oxford Uni if we're counting national wonders.

    Internet isn't actually a wonder. It's a project (which means it can't be rushed)


    Broadway
    Hollywood
    Statue of Liberty
    UN
    Kremlin
    Eiffel Tower
    Versailles (I think - I was pretty young)

    I've kind of seen the Parthenon - there is an exact reproduction in Nashville

    Wall Street
    Mt Rushmore
    Hermitage

    I have seen mulitple national parks ;)

    Lemme guess: You live in France (Eiffel Tower, Versailles and Notre Dame) and you used the Chunnel to go in Great Britain, letting you to see SH and Oxford University. :)

    Did I guess right? :p

    Where I live, except CN tower, well, we have to travel far to get a view of some great wonders...

    Cristo Redentor, the Pyramids, Chichen itza, and Stonehenge when I was very young (about 4 or 5, so it doesn't really count. Civ hadn't been invented yet.)

    Close. I live in Belgium.
    There are no Dutch/Belgian wonders, sadly :(
    I've already been to Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands and England in my life. We went to Rome when I was only 2 years old, so if I saw some wonders there, I can't remember.
