Amazing! 4.2/5 Expedia Guest Rating

On this guided tour to Cape Sounion, the southernmost tip of Attic peninsula in Greece, admire the ruins of the mighty temple of Poseidon. Take in the impressive vista and marvel at the Doric columns that inspired many poets, including Homer and Lord Byron.

Your tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Riviera. During this relaxing journey, enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while you pass through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza.

As you reach Cape Sounion, visit the ruins of the 5th-century BC Temple of Poseidon and admire its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea – on a clear day, you can see at least 7 islands. With a long, important role in Greek mythology and history, Cape Sounion is first mentioned in the "Odyssey" as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy.

As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important to ancient Greeks and the scale of the temple reflects this immense role. After taking in the beauty, history and culture of the monument, admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine. As the sun begins to slowly touch the sea, take in the view and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine before returning to your hotel.
