Mount Olympus is the home of the gods. It is located in Greece between Macedonia and Thessaly. Mount Olympus stands about 9,570 feet. It is also near the Aegean Sea. It is said that Hephaestus, the blacksmith god, built all the palaces and places where the gods roamed on Mount Olympus. Also, in drawings, the top of Mount Olympus is surrounded by clouds and everything is made up of clouds. Everyday, it is told, the gods would go to the Great Hall and have a feast. They would eat ambrosia and drink nectar. These tasty treats were served by the goddess of youth, Hebe. At the feasts, Apollo would play songs on his lyre and the muses would sing in the background.
