What to expect

If you're looking to explore Attika beyond Athens, you'll appreciate this great half-day tour, complete with stunning views and world-class Greek ruins.

Itinerary

Your tour will kick off with a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf. On your way to the famous Cape Sounion, you will pass through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza).

The Cape's Temple of Poseidon is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea. Take in the magnificent view across the Aegean! Сonsidered one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world, it stretches all the way to Kea and the Peloponnese.

The Temple of Poseidon was built in 44 B.C., and many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns has a graffito left by none other than Lord Byron in the early 1800s! There is a lot more to say about this picturesque site, but it's is better to see once than hear a hundred times.
