Enjoy a unique afternoon by booking a half-day trip to Cape Sounion, home to the majestic Temple of Poseidon, surrounded practically entirely by sea.

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.
