activity info

A half day afternoon trip from Athens full of images and breathtaking views. Begin your Sounio tour with a wonderful drive  along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada,Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and idyllic beaches. As you approach Cape Sounion, one of Greece’s most photographed monuments, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. At  Cape Sounio where you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands).The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.

Land masses to the west stand out in sharp profile: the island of Aegina backed by the mountains of the Peloponnese. The beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns. This half day excursion is a great option if you want to discover Greece beyond Athens, enjoy stunning views and visit world famous Greek ruins.

“Excelente.”
El tiempo de estadía en Sounion debería ser 30 minutos mayor (1 hora libre), para permitir comer y/o tomar algo, en función que la actividad se desarrolla a la hora de comer.

Gorgeous drive to an amazing landmark!
The bus was very comfortable, and hotel pickup was a nice bonus. Our guide was very nice and gave a good overview of Athens and the areas on the way to the cape, and told us a lot about the Temple when we got there. Not too long or short a trip--highly recommended.

3 Hours bus drive along the beautiful Athenian Riviera!!!At every bend of the street a new amazing view!And finally 1 hour at the Poseidon temple at Cape Sounion.
It is absolutely worthwhile to make the trip!
Especially if you have a competent and friendly guide as Sofia Grydaki!!!

“Lovely views” We thought we were going to see the sun set over the island as stated when we booked, but we had 45 minutes then back on the couch back. Lovely views though and the guide was very good.
