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.

“Nice, short trip from Athens with amazing views” We really enjoyed the trip to Sounion to see the temple and take in the views. Our guide was really informative and this was a nice short trip from Athens. I would recommend going for the latest tour possible, if you want to catch the sunset.

Hotel pick up never happened despite email and phone confirmation beforehand. Instead we had to frantically arrange for a taxi to take us to the Key Tours office where we could meet up with the coach. This was a bad start to the trip and we felt like we had delayed the other guests on the trip, even though this was an oversight on Key Tours part! The drive to Sounion was nice, and the Temple well worth the visit. The guide provided key pieces of information before allowing us all 30 minutes free time to walk around, take pictures etc. More free time would have been worthwhile given the 180 minutes round trip to and from Athens, it was a bit of a rush.
