Athens Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour plus Half-Day Cape Sounion Trip
$132.71
Overview
Combine two popular tours of Athens and Cape Sounion into one day at a discounted price with this Athens Super Saver. In the morning, board an air-conditioned coach for a sightseeing tour of Athens’ highlights. With an expert guide, stroll around the Parthenon and antiquities on the Acropolis; visit the New Acropolis Museum; see the Panathenaic Stadium and more. Then, take an afternoon trip to Cape Sounion, where the Temple of Poseidon overlooks the Aegean Sea. Admire the glittering temple and stellar views before your return by coach to Athens.
What to Expect
Morning Athens Sightseeing Tour:
Begin your morning Athens sightseeing tour with a pickup from your Athens hotel, or alternatively, at a meeting point in central Athens.

Relax into your air-conditioned coach and drive to the Acropolis, the ancient citadel of Athens perched high above the city on a rocky outcrop. Head through the gates with your guide, and stroll around the top Acropolis attractions, including the Temple of Athena Nike, Propylea, Erechtheion, and the spectacular Parthenon.


Having explored these classical masterpieces, continue to the Panathenaic Stadium, the arena that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Snap photos of the all-marble stadium and then drive to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square.

Admire the handsome government buildings around the square, and then head along Panepistimiou Street, one of Athens’ main avenues. See St Dionysius Cathedral with its arcaded portico, and pass the elegant buildings of the University of Athens, National Library and Academy of Athens.

Lastly, pay a visit to the Acropolis Museum, the ultra-modern museum that houses many of the classical statues, friezes and artifacts recovered from the Acropolis. After viewing the highlights here, conclude your sightseeing tour, and enjoy around an hour of free time to relax or have lunch (own expense) at a local taverna before your afternoon tour.


Afternoon Cape Sounion Trip:
At around 2:45pm, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you journey south to Cape Sounion. As you travel, admire the beautiful beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear tales of the Cape and its showpiece: the glimmering white Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, leave your coach and walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the awesome sea views and if it’s clear weather, gaze out over the island of Kea in the distance.

Admire the Doric columns of the 5th century BC temple and hear about the Greek myths that surround the building. Then, see the inscription made on one of the columns by the English poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.



Afterward, travel back to Athens where your tour ends at your hotel or the original start point.

In 3 weeks in Greece this had to be the worst experience we had. So sad we wasted our last day and almost $400 on this tour. The guide only cared about herding us like cattle and wanted to get the day over with. I...More

Sounio tour was great, Athens tour was only OK

Did this package, and don't regret it, but felt the Athens half-day tour was a little disappointing. Not enough time at the stops (Panathanaic stadium and Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum). Definitely recommend the Sounio tour. Take it so you are there at sunset,...More
