Sunset Tour: Cape Sounion & Temple of Poseidon
You will have the opportunity to experience a breathtaking sunset at the unique temple of Poseidon, the God of the Seas in ancient times with this guided half day tour to Cape Sounion.

The tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera. During this wonderful ride with your luxury air conditioned bus you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including Hellinikon Olympic complex, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza.

Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will walk up to the Temple of Poseidon (5th century B.C.) with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). One of its columns has a graffiti left by lord Byron in the early 1800s. Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that.

Finishing from the Temple, filled with history and culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine. And when the sun begins to slowly touch the sea it is the perfect moment for a glass of wine, before returning back to your hotel.
