The Geography of ancient Greece affect the people in many different ways. Here's how:
Visiting a Farm
Traveling from Place to Place
Starting a Colony
In Greece, most of the land was rocky and mountainous, not right growing conditions for plants or crops. So, it was difficult to plant crops or to grow anything. However, out of the few crops they could choose, they grew olives, grapes, and sometimes barley. Olives would be made into olive oil.
As farming was difficult, so was transportation. Transportation was hard due to the mountains and high peaks that the people had to cross to go to other city-states. So, whenever they traveled, they took mules or horses to ride on or take their bags. However, the most comfortable way to take the boat or water on a ship.
In Greece, some city-states needed better crops. So, they sent out a group of people to investigate the nearby lands and grow crops there. When they did, they would send the surplus to the city-states. This spread their culture around and also helped them trade or interact with other countries.
