Cape Sounion & Poseidon’s Temple
One of the most beautiful and relaxing road trips outside the city of Athens, that will give you the opportunity to see another side of Athens. Real Athens! Also if you want to start the tour on the afternoon you will experience an amazing breathtaking Sunset at the Temple of Poseidon.
Depart from Athens to a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs, P. Faliron, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, to Cape Sounion where 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!
“This tour can be booked as a full day to include swimming either in Lake Vouliagmeni or at any organized beach along the way to Cape Sounio”
