Half Day Tour at Sounion, Temple of Poseidon
“Α five-hour ride from Athens”.
We are going to drive by the coastal road of Southern Attica, which offers a magnificent view of the Saronic Gulf. During the route we will pass through some of the most beautiful suburbs of Athens (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza). As we reach our destination, you will see Cape Sounion rising in a steep cliff, 60 meters above the sea.
Cape Sounion, is the ancient Temple of Poseidon. It dates back from the 5th century B.C. and you will be able to make a visit. The beauty of the temple’s surviving Doric columns and its landscape, has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron, who carved his name on one of the columns.
Tourists and visitors from all around the world underline that the Temple of Poseidon has a breathtaking panoramic view. On a clear day travellers can see at at least seven islands at the horizon. Some of them are Kea, Kythnos and Serifos. Peloponnese and Aegina island stand to the west.
