Ancient Greeks believed gods and goddesses lived at the top of Mount Olympus because its peak was always shrouded with clouds. Of course, no one thought - or had the resources to- climb the mountain to see what was there.

No, she does not. Astarte is the Greek name of the Mesopotamian(i.e. Assyrian, Akkadian, Babylonian) Semitic goddess Ishtar.
They ate ambrosia and drank nectar. Also some believe that the gods and goddesses had more than just that. The question has been thrown around still. But nothing shows this hypothesis to be correct so it is just believed to be Ambrosia and Nectar.

Yes, as an Olympian goddess she did. She also lived in the mountains and in forest with her virgin huntresses.
The Greeks based all their beliefs on their imagination not based on science. Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece, so they believed that Zeus(supream ruler of the gods and ruler of the sky) threw lighting bolts down from the mountain duing thunder storms. of course the Greeks couldn't ac…tually see the gods because mount Olympus's peek is surrounded by clouds. ( Full Answer )
its because god is in the sky so other gods and goddesses want to go there too im not sure this is a right answer . its my opinion . post other opinions here now.
They did not tell us. But it was the highest place they could find in Greece.
Zeus (Jupiter in Roman mythology) was the King of the gods and lived on Mount Olympus.
They found it a nice high place where they had a good view of what people did.
No, they are not As real as any other god. Of course they don't! They are just a myth. Though some peoplestill believe in them, they're NOT real. That's exactly like saying that Jesus wasn't real, thatGod/Allah/Buddha isn't real, that the God and the Goddess don'texist. By saying that the Olymp…ians do not exist, you arecritcising a belief that, in fact, used to be a major religion. I for one, believe that the Olympians exist. They may be part of amythology, but that doesn't make them fictional creatures. Watchwhat you say... They are mythological gods. They don't exist. People build houseson Mt. Olympus and live there and climb it. Are there any gods? No!Also Greek Mythology says Olympus reaches the heavens, it isn'teven as tall as Mt. Everest! ( Full Answer )

No one on Earth has been to Heaven, that I know of. So technically this question can only be answered by opinion. On my opinion, no, Mount Olympus and the greek gods are not real and in Heaven. Mount Olympus does however exist in Greece. But on the other hand, the greek gods are myths, therefore, th…ey do not exist. ( Full Answer )
Olympian rulers: Hera Athena Artemis Aphrodite Demeter Hestia, then later Dionysus who took her place. Hephaestus Zeus Apollo Ares Poseidon Hermes
This question can't be definitely answered as myths differ. The main residents of Olypmus are Zeus, Hera, Hebe, Iris and later Hercules. However, all the other gods have access to Mount Olympus and according to some myths like that of Phaeton, every god has a house in Olympus.
THey believed that because it was the tallest mountain in Greece so they thought that how they watched over them or that how they got to the sky.
Hercules is said to have become a god after his mortal death. Also, the only Olympian demigod was Dionysus; who was son of Zeus and Semele, who became the goddess Thyone.
Ancient Greeks did not have the same technologies and tolerances that we do. So, when people tried to climb Mount Olympus and never returned, their friends and family thought that the Gods disintegrated the climber.
SInce Greeks didn't have science, they needed ways to explaincertain things. So they came up w/ the gods

No, despite being shown as such in the 1980 classic, Clash of the Titans , Thetis is not an Olympian. While she was an ancient goddess (a granddaughter of Tethys, the Titan who ruled the seas with Oceanus). Thetis' only relevance in mythology is from a prophecy of Prometheus, who warned Zeus (who …was wooing her at the time) that Thetis would bear a son who would eclipse his father in power.

No. There is a reason why this category is called 'Greek and Roman MYTHOLOGIES', you know. Sorry about being so rash. It's just that so many people think that the myths are real!

Hercules does, and so does Dionysus, but they became gods after death and were the sons of Zeus.
Uranus is the Roman version of Zues, however there is no stories of the Roman gods living on the mountain. It is unsure if the Roman's gave their gods a "home" like the Greeks.
The gods had fire to keep them warm. Since the humans didn't havefire, the gods didn't have to worry about the humans trying toattack them.
In Greek mythology, 12 Olympians are the major deities. Zeus. Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Ares, Aphrodite, Hermes, Hestia or Dionysus
