Cape Sounion Half Day Trip from Athens
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.
While most of the travelers combine Athens with the Acropolis hill and the Parthenon, the destination of Attica region has a lot more to offer.
Let me introduce you to the magical Athenian Riviera and drive you all the way to the only surviving Temple of Poseidon.
During this beautiful road trip, I share with you stories about Greek culture, history, mythology and present situation.
I will take you to the best locations for unique pictures, that only a local like me can take you there. I will also recommend you a fantastic local place for lunch or dinner, offering breathtaking view.
I will customize our trip according to your own taste, my target is always for you to have an amazing time.
Safety is always a priority for me, with my New Luxurious Mercedes Minivan you will enjoy every minute of traveling. Don't guess, be my guest!
In this tour, you will have the opportunity to admire the Athenian coastline on the way to Cape Sounion visiting the temple of Poseidon.
We will 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 (Palaion Faliron, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza), all the way to Cape Sounion where you will visit the 5th century B. C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views.
On the way, we are going to stop at specific locations, like the ''secret'' Lake of Athens. It will take us about one and a half hours with the stops, to reach our final destination, Cape Sounio. The visit to the temple is much easier than the visit to Acropolis hill and it is very easily accessible (Cape Sounio visit: approximately 30 min)
After your visit to the archaeological site, you will have the opportunity to have lunch at a local restaurant with a magical view, next to the water (approx. 1 hour)
