So actually it is a beautiful mountain in Greece that you can visit, but you sure as hell won't be shaking hands with Zeus when you get there. The gods settled in their nest on high after defeating the Titans (which isn't as hard as it used to be, these days). They decided on a ruling body of the 12 gods of the Pantheon, though there was no real hierarchy after Zeus and each god was prone to the same pride and bickering that man was. However, Mt. Olympus was a sweet pad, where no wind or rain ever came, just a clear sky to do some ruling over and accept your sacrifices day in, day out. We're also assuming they were fed grapes all day, though no writing exists to corroborate this.
