Cape Sounion Coach Day Tour From Athens

This relaxing short day tour from central Athens is all about the sightseeing. The coach follows a scenic route along the eastern shores of the Saronic Gulf, passing through the picturesque Athenian suburbs of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza as it carries passengers to Cape Sounion. The area is a popular getaway destination for native Athenians and the contrast between the hustle and bustle of the city and the serene wilderness of Sounion's Aegean cliff faces is palpable. The highlight attraction is the Temple of Poseidon, which sits perched on the edge of a 197ft precipice!

About The Cape Sounion Day Tour From Athens:

Save space in the memory card for Cape Sounion's breathtaking panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and its rugged, unspoiled peninsular terrain. The tour will reach its peak at the Temple of Poseidon, a dedication to the ancient Greek God of the Sea. Though Poseidon's statue no longer resides in the same place the temple's towering Doric columns are a marvel in their own right. Depending on which time of year you visit you're likely to catch sight of a stunning coastal sunset. From Cape Sounion the tour returns to Athens at around 19:00.
