Join our half day tour to Cape Sounion and experience a breathtaking sunset at the unique temple of Poseidon, the God of the Seas in ancient times.
Our tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera.  During this relaxing ride with your luxury air conditioned bus you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza.

Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will visit the 5th century B.C.  Temple of Poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands).  One of its columns has a graffiti left by none other than lord Byron in the early 1800s.  Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returned Greek navy.    As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that.
After visiting the Temple, filled with the beauty, the history and the culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine.
