This tour is full of images and breathtaking views. A half day afternoon trip to Cape Sounio from Athens. Begin your Sounio tour with a wonderful drive along the coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada,Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and beautiful beaches. As you approach to Cape Sounion, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. The temple of Poseidon, which was built in the 5th century B.C. has 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. You can see the island of Aegina backed by the mountains of the Peloponnese and as the sun falls down the views become more impressive.
The beauty of the Poseidon Temple 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 temple.
