Overview
Unless you hire a car, visiting Cape Sounion from Athens independently means a relatively long bus journey, with multiple stops. This half-day, small-group tour provides an easy alternative, with air-conditioned minivan travel, guided commentary on the cape’s Temple of Poseidon, and ample time to admire the ruins and Aegean views. A choice of departures allows for a sunset visit, plus there’s a beach break en route as a bonus.
What to Expect
Select your preferred departure on booking and, after pickup from your central Athens hotel, set off along the Athens Riviera by air-conditioned minivan.

Pass through Athens’ suburbs of Glyfada and Vouliagmeni, and admire the Saronic Gulf, seaside resorts, and villages as you follow the coastal roads east.

During your outward or return journey (depending on selected departure), take a break beside the sea. Perhaps enjoy a light meal or drinks (own expense) or lounge or swim at a beach. If you plan to swim, bring your swimming gear.

On arrival, explore the fifth-century Temple of Poseidon perched on the headland. Listen as your guide narrates its history, including how it was dedicated to the god of the sea, Poseidon, and served as a beacon for mariners. (Entry to the Temple of Poseidon is at your own expense.)

Soak in the sunset over the Aegean (depending on selected departure), and take photos of the panoramas before your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.

Beautiful

Had a lovely trip with Panos. Our ride was very picturesque and we had a great stop at a beach. The Sanctuary of Zeus was really amazing, and the scenery around the Sanctuary was gorgeous. Great trip and fantastic guide, Panos!!
