Athenian Riviera and Cape Sounion

5 hours tour
By taking this tour you can combine exploring the Athenian Riviera with its must see monuments, the temple of Poseidon and Sounion, with one of the most magnificent sunsets Athens has to offer. Also you will have time to enjoy dinner with fresh seafood or other Greek traditional cuisine recipes by the seaside underneath the temple of Poseidon.
Board your fully air-conditioned private vehicle and start your journey with a leisurely drive down the Athenian Riviera.
Your English speaking driver will give you information about the districts you will be driving through as you will be heading south.
On your way to Cape Sounion, you will pass through some of the most beautiful suburbs of Athens right next to the sea, like Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni which among other things, is famous for its underground lake.
Then you will enter the winding road by the Saronic Gulf and you will enjoy driving next to the sea, passing several villages, little islands and areas that are mainly consisted by summer homes of the Athenians, with exceptional architecture.
Before your arrival to Cape Sounion, you will have the view of the remaining standing columns of the temple of Poseidon, from quite a distance. This was why in the past, sailors used to call the port next to it "Cavo Colones", meaning the port with the columns, which was also helping them find their way towards Attica. You can ask your driver to make a short stop for photos with the nice background of the temple of Poseidon.
As soon as you arrive in Cape Sounion, you will be dropped off at the entrance of the archaeological site, that is only a short walk to the temple of Poseidon and take pictures of the magnificent view all around you and the sunset. When the atmosphere is very clear, you can see a lot of the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea from a distance.
Underneath Cape Sounion there is a small bay where you can enjoy your dinner at a taverna right by the seaside.
Alternatively if you choose to visit Cape Sounion earlier in the day you can have the chance to enjoy a swim with your meal. Contact us to customize your experience to the Athenian Riviera according to your preferences and timeframe.
