Tour Description

A wonderful half day afternoon tour from Athens to Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon. The tour starts driving through  the scenic coastal road which rewards you with  splendid views of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza).

As you approach Cape Sounion, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. At Cape Sounio you will get a detailed guided tour from our licensed guide and you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking 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.

Land masses to the west stand out in sharp profile: the island of Aegina backed by the mountains of the Peloponnese. The beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns.
