Half-Day Cape Sounion

Half-Day Cape Sounion

Depart for a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens" most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) to Cape Sounion where you will visit the 5th century BC Temple of Poseidon where one cannot fail to be deeply impressed and inspired by one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world.

On a clear day, you will be able to see at least seven islands of the Saronic Gulf and Aegean Sea. The precipice at the Cape is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea. Land masses to the west stand out in sharp profile: the island of Aegina backed by the mountain of the Peloponnese. The beauty of the surviving Dorin columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns.
