Both are breathtaking, but the Posideon view will require a 3-5 hour investment!

Both sites are great to enjoy the sunset.....with the temple of Poseidon being more special due to its history........do not miss visiting them both though ;)

Enjoy Athens!

I agree that both are great but you cannot compare them. Sounio has its own magical atmosphere with the temple, the rocky islans and the sea while Lycavittos will give you a great evening view over the city with it's thousands of lights. Very romantic.
