Overview

Tour the celebrated Athens Riviera shoreline all the way to the stunning Temple of Poseidon overlooking the Aegean seawith a dramatic sunset over Cape Sounion! Find out why Athenians love the sea but even before the tour reaches the seashore, there’s a stop to be made at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, the newest great edifice in the city and home to both the National Library and the National Opera. Admire the enormous park filled with olive trees and a large reflecting pool.

From there, you’ll head to Lake Vouliagmeni, where fresh spring water and saltwater mix to create a mineral-rich environment that is home to those funny little doctor fish (Garrarufa) that nibble your toes clean for you! Thereafter you enjoy a walk along one of the most scenic seaside settings and discover an ancient Temple whose location is a big surprise.

You are now ready to head to Cape Sounion, stopping on the way at a seaside tavern for a drink and some tapas with a marvelous view. Once there, behold the Temple of Poseidon, a 5th-century archaeological site perched on the very top of Cape Sounion. By the Aegean Sea is where you 'll enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in Greece from the site of the temple itself!
