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.

The tour is really beautiful, informative and inspiring. The guide Anastasia was great! But - if tourists were given 30 minutes more to have a meal at the Cafe, it would be better.

Hoewel het eigenlijk wel te verwachten was volgens de info. Het was vooral rijden van en naar de locatie. De tempel is zeker indrukwekkend. Maar achteraf gezien zou ik het niet gedaan hebben. De gids probeerde tijdens de heen reis met info de reizigers te vermaken.
