Enjoy a scenic drive with beautiful views of the Saronic Gulf on your guided evening tour to Cape Sounion. Visit the famous Temple of Poseidon, learn interesting facts about this historical monument, and soak up stunning views of the Aegean Sea.

The drive will take you along the scenic coastal road. Admire splendid views of the Saronic Gulf, as you pass through some of Athens' most beautiful suburbs, including Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza to Cape Sounion.

The Cape's Temple of Poseidon is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the Aegean Sea. The view across the Aegean is magnificent, and is one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world, extending all the way to Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day.

The Temple of Poseidon was built in 5th century B.C., and many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns has a graffiti left by none other that Lord Byron in the early 1800s. The precipice is a sheer 200 ft (60 m) drop to the sea.

After taking in the views from this ancient site, head back to the Greek capital with your guide.
