Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Temple of Poseidon, Cape Sounio, Sounio 195 00 Greece

Our tour starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Rivera. During this relaxing ride, 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 visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). 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. After visiting the Temple, filled with the beauty, the history and the culture of this site we will wait to admire one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine.

Pictures don’t do this justice! It’s a nearly 2 hour bus ride to Cape Sounion, but the tour guide provides history and information the entire ride! You learn so much about different areas of Athens during your drive that you probably wouldn’t have learned otherwise. Once you arrive, get ready for...

Beautiful site and location. Must see if you visit Athens. Tour was well organized and staff were friendly. I would have personally liked to hear more about the history of Greece on the bus ride there, as opposed to information about each locality we passed through.

It is a beautiful ride up to the cape and a stunning view when there. However, there is some false advertising here. This was advertised as a SUNSET TOUR. This website and their brochure mention "sunset tour". We did not get to stay long enough for the sunset. They gave us ONE HOUR when we arriv...
