Cape Sounion, located at the southernmost tip of Attica, is the destination that you must not miss if you have a few hours to spare in Athens. Its ideal location offers a breathtaking view of the Saronic Gulf and the Aegean Sea, while on a clear day you can also see up to six islands at a distance. The most significant feature of the area, though, is the Temple of Poseidon, which is perched atop a cliff at the edge of the Cape, at a height of 60 metres above sea level. The Temple of Poseidon was built in the middle of the 5th century B.C. to honour Poseidon, the ancient Greek God of the sea.
We will pick you up from the assigned location and together we will drive along the southern coastline of Attica. As we drive, you will be able to see the most vibrant coastal suburbs of Athens: Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni, along with their beaches which are enjoyed by thousands of people daily. Further down on our drive, we will come across the picturesque seaside resorts of Lagonissi, Saronida and Palaia Fokaia. Afterwards we will arrive at Cape Sounion, where you can visit the archaeological site, see the remains of the Temple of Poseidon and gaze at the unique view of the Aegean Sea. Moreover, you can enjoy a refreshment or snack at the nearby café
Cape Sounion is 70km from the centre of Athens and it takes approximately one 1hr10’ to reach it, always depending on the traffic. The total duration of our visit cannot be smaller than 3 hours, allowing about a one-hour visit to the archaeological site.
