Same as the start point
Begin your Sounio tour with a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf. Pass through some of Athens's most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada,Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and idyllic beaches as you approach Cape Sounion, one of Greece’s most photographed monuments which rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea.
At Cape Sounio, visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world, where 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.
