Take a half-day tour of Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon. Pass idyllic beaches, as you leave Athens for some of the most gorgeous ruins of ancient Greece. Your fun guide will fill you in on the history of Greece, as you look out over Poseidon's sea!
Stop at: Temple Of Poseidon
You begin your tour with a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road, which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of the most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) of Athens. Once there you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breath-taking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). The precipice is a sheer 197-foot drop to the sea.
Sounio is a wonderful choice for a half-day trip from Athens, and is a world-famous spot at sunset.
