Quiz: how well do you know Greece's tourist attractions?
With a new film set in Greece opening in cinemas today, test yourself on country's tourist attractions

The Two Faces of January, starring Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac, opens in cinemas today. Set in Greece during the Sixties, with a stunning backdrop of ancient attractions including the Parthenon and the ruins of Knossos in Crete, it tells the story of three Americans (a couple and their tour guide) whose lives become entangled with dramatic consequences.

The Telegraph's Tim Robey described it as an "elegantly pleasurable period thriller" that's "a treat to look at". Read his full review here.

Inspired by the film's release, we've devised the above quiz on Greece and its tourist attractions. How will your knowledge stand up? The pass mark is 60 per cent.

Surprised to get 90%.  Goofed on the Parthenon question  :oops: .  Dunno how I got the Mamma Mia question right.  I never saw it and had no idea Pierce Brosnan was even in it!!

The data revealed that the Greek island of Skiathos, located in the Sporades group, has received a record in requests. The demand to obtain slots to perform flights in the destination’s airport this year has risen by 350 percent.
