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 drive thru to arrive to the place gives amazing views and the place is worth the trip from Athens downtown. The temple and the surrounding area are great. The guide explained historical facts about Athens and Sounion. Pick up and drop off were easy. I enjoyed the afternoon.

Excellent trip - Cape Sounion is beautiful!

We actually booked the "Half Day Tour of Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon" with Athens Walking Tours who use this company Key Tours for this tour. The organisation for the pick-up was very efficient and right on time. Our tour guide gave us a commentary on the coach about the sights we passed and some Greek Mythological background. When we arrived at Sounion she walked up to the Temple of Poseidon with us, telling us all about it. Then she left us to explore on our own, allowing plenty of time to take photos....and what a photogenic spot: it's beautiful. A well worthwhile excursion to take a break from seeing the sights of Athens. Highly recommended.

“convenient way to reach the cape and temple with lots of good info”

After failing at renting a motorcycle, I begrudgingly booked this tour and it was totally worth it! It was relaxing not having to drive, and Katarina was full of fun fact from the city (Fix beer....) to the temple. I personally felt we had enough time to take in the sights and then got to relax again on the way back. All around good afternoon!
