Cape Sounion Tour in the Afternoon
Departures: Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday
The Cape Sounion afternoon tour:
Drive along the coastal road, passing the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni & Varkiza to the most Southern point of Attica, Cape Sounion, where the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon stand.
Cape Sounion is a promontory located 69 kilometers (43 mi) south-southeast of Athens, at the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula in Greece.
Cape Sounion is noted as the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology.
The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The ruins bear the deeply engraved name of English Romantic Poet Lord Byron (1788–1823).
The site is a popular day-excursion for tourists from Athens, with the sunset over the Aegean Sea, as viewed from the ruins, a sought-after sight.
On the way, you have a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf and the little islands offshore.
After visiting the Temple of Poseidon, you have time to walk at leisure on the rocky promontory of Sounion.
