A half day afternoon trip from Athens full of images and breathtaking views. Begin your Sounio tour with 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 (Glyfada,Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and idyllic beaches. As you approach Cape Sounion, one of Greece’s most photographed monuments, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. At  Cape Sounio 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.

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. This half day excursion is a great option if you want to discover Greece beyond Athens, enjoy stunning views and visit world famous Greek ruins..

The ride from Athens to Cape Sounion is AMAZING, the view from the windows as we pass by the seaside is breathtaking. The Temple of Poseidon may not be as magnificent as the Parthenon, but it's location, lying right by the sea more than makes up for it.  The guide was great, he knew his information well, as a history nerd i felt like all my questions were answered. Keep your camera on you at all times. The tour is filled with sights to capture. There is a bit of walking involved when you reach the site, make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water.
