Half day is perfect, Cape Sounion not really necessary

Drive through Athens with stadium, visiting Acropolis and museum and the lunch are very nice experience and I would recommend it. An hour and half drive to Cape Sounion and back just to see one more temple (after Parthenon, it is not that fascinating) I do not see as the time being well spent. And you could save 49 euro if you skip this activity. In my opinion, there is no value for money in visiting Cape Sounion.
