Half Day Tour of Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon

Duration: 04:00 (Approx.)

You begin your tour with a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of the most beautiful suburbs of Athens (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza).

Once there 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. Sounion is a wonderful choice for a half day trip from Athens, and is a world famous spot at sunset. You will have the services of a highly qualified and knowledgeable guide with you who will provide background information of the places you will see along the way.

After your visit to the temple you will have time to take your pictures and stop for coffee or refreshments by the site.
