Set out to a private sunset day trip to Cape Sounion. Our trip starts with a wonderful drive along the Athens Riviera. During this relaxing ride you’ll enjoy splendid views of the Saronic Gulf while passing through some of Athens’ most beautiful suburbs, including Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza. Your private driver will share tips and insights and recommend places to go or have a nice meal.
Arriving at the Cape Sounion, you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with its magnificent panoramic view of the Aegean Sea (on a clear day you can see several islands). Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was very important for ancient Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that.
At the Temple, be filled from the beauty, the history and the culture of this unique place. Wander around the ruins and view the signature of Lord Byron, carved here in the early 1800s.
Absorb the far-reaching views over the Aegean and take unique photos.
Later on, your private driver will recommend you scenic places to go for a meal or even enjoy a delicious waffle with ice cream.
