Overview

Feast your eyes on the sensational coastal stretch of the Athenian Riviera and end it on a note of magnificence, with a visit to the Temple of Poseidon. This leisurely ride to the stunning Cape Sounion is dotted with spectacular panoramas of the Saronic Gulf and some of the prettiest suburbs of Athens, including Hellinikon Olympic Complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza. Cape Sounion itself, located at the southern tip of the Attica Peninsula, is breath taking with its gorgeous limestone cliffs and a pristine blue sea. Steeped in the enigma of thousands of years of history, the biggest highlight of Cape Sounion is definitely the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, dating back to the 5th century BC. The ethereal beauty of the still standing Doric columns has inspired romantics for centuries, including poets like Lord Byron, and why not - the majestic presence of these glistening marble columns and well as the fact that the place is a perfect vantage point for astonishing sunsets, makes it a truly iconic location. Lose yourself to the magical nostalgia of the Golden Era of human civilisations!
