Let yourself be tempted by this half-day excursion departing from Athens and explore Cape Sounion at dusk!

Your tour will begin along the river in Athens by luxury vehicle. During the journey, admire a number of landscapes of the Saronic Gulf Islands including the Hellinikon Olympic Complex, Glyfada, Vouliagméni or Varkiza.

Once arrived in Cape Sounion, a National Greek Park, visit the Temple of Poseidon that dates back to the 4th century BC. You will be impressed by the location of the site at the farthest point of the Cape, looking out at sea. 

Cape Sounion has always been an important place in Greek mythology and history. The site is mentioned in Homer’s "The Odyssey", and in countless other legends and popular lore. The impressive temple reflects the importance of the God Poseidon for ancient Greeks. 

At the end of your trip, enjoy a glass of wine while you admire the sunset over the sea from a breathtaking vantage point.

  • Heaven on Earth It was a short stay on site, but worth every penny. The view is amazing. So is the road which takes you there while it follows the coast for most of the way. Anastasia, our guide, was very enthusiastic and thoughtful. A vry nice get-away from noisy Athens

  • Les explications de la guide étaient intéressantes, le site est effectivement magnifique surtout avec le coucher du soleil, le vin était bon! Par contre c'est vraiment "très touristique"... suggestion : quelques petits morceaux de viandes/fromages grecs seraient les bienvenus pour accompagner le vin!
