Enjoy a unique afternoon by booking a half-day trip to Cape Sounion, home to the majestic Temple of Poseidon, surrounded practically entirely by the sea.
Your guide will collect you from your hotel on an air-conditioned coach and you will head to Cape Sounion, by taking the coastal road which offers spectacular views of the Saronic Gulf and of the following beaches: Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza, until you get to the southernmost part of the region of Attica.
Upon arrival, you will visit the Temple of Poseidon, a splendid construction founded in the fifth century B.C., built on a 60-meter high promontory surrounded by the sea.
After enjoying impressive views of the Aegean Sea from the ruins, you’ll have time to relax, take photos and enjoy the stunning and peaceful scenery, before heading back to the capital.
The bus will drop you off at around 6:30pm. You can choose to be dropped off at your hotel or in the city center.
Your guide will collect you and drop you off at your hotel (if it is a centrally-located hotel). Once you have booked the tour, you will receive an email with your hotel pick-up time. If your hotel is in the outskirts, you will be sent information on the closest hotel you must go to.
