Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece, known for its captivating blend of ancient history, modern culture, and Mediterranean charm. Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, with a recorded history dating back over 3,400 years. The city is popular for its many ancient landmarks and monuments, still well preserved. On this trip, you’ll visit the stunning Cape Sounion in Athens, home to the famous Temple of Poseidon.

To begin your trip, the experienced guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Athens in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan (please specify your location upon booking). You can choose from a morning tour or an afternoon sunset tour. This small group excursion is welcome to people of all ages, perfect for families or friends! Once everyone is on board, the guide will drive through the southern suburbs of Athens towards the Athens Riviera. You’ll enjoy a scenic drive along the impressive coastal road of Athens with great views of the Aegean Sea.

Along the way, you’ll stop at Glyfada and Vouliagmeni, two beautiful coastal suburbs located in the southern part of Athens. One of the main attractions in Vouliagmeni is the Vouliagmeni Lake, a picturesque brackish-water lake fed by underground thermal springs. The lake's mineral-rich waters are believed to have therapeutic properties. You’ll stop here for a quick photo break, before continuing along the coast.

The next stop will be a small, sandy beach located near Cape Sounion. In the summer months, you’ll enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters, or you can simply relax by the sea. If you wish, you can also purchase a light meal here while taking in the peaceful surroundings. Then, you’ll finish the drive and arrive at Cape Sounion. This is a magnificent attraction located at the southernmost tip of the Attica Peninsula.

Cape Sounion is most famous for the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea, which stands atop a sheer cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea. It was built in the 5th century and is constructed entirely of marble from nearby quarries in Agrilesa. One of the main attractions of the Temple of Poseidon is its breathtaking location, which offers amazing panoramic views of the surrounding coastline. If you choose the afternoon tour, you’ll be treated to the famous Greek sunset, when the temple and the sea are bathed in golden light. After exploring the temple and admiring the view, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive back to your accommodation in Athens.
