About
The lacy coastal road that begins in the Athenian suburb of Glyfada and winds its way through Vouliagmeni and Lagonisi to reach Cape Sounio is one of Attica’s most sublime routes. Small beaches with their sandy shores or rocky stretches, crystal-clear sparkling water and a perfectly blue sky accompany you along the way and delight the senses, mind and soul of anyone taking this gorgeous route to get to one of Greece’s most idyllic spots, Cape Sounio. From a distance, your gaze is captivated by the ruins of the temple of Poseidon, commanding, stunning, a characteristic example of classical architecture of the 5th century BC. This is the spot that the ancient Athenians chose to honor their god Poseidon, within a fortress constructed to protect their coastline. Millions of visitors from around the globe also come here to gaze upon the sun setting into the arms of the Saronic Gulf. A memory that stays with them for a lifetime...

Ask for Gregory!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Our guide, Gregory, was amazing! He provided so many tidbits about Athens, as well as the areas we were going thru along the way. It started raining on us while we were at the Temple of Poseidon and he was there within seconds to scoop us up! He also gave us some excellent food recommendations to help us avoid the tourist traps. The tour itself is a MUST. Seeing the temple away from the busyness of Athens was a lovely break. Thank you Gregory for a wonderful tour!

EXCELLENT TRIP
Jul 2019 • Couples
Vassili (our awesome driver) picked us up right from our hotel on time to go visit the temple of Poseidon/cape sunion in the Mercedes large air conditioned van. We booked the tour from 4-8pm. It took about an hour to get there as we drove along the beautiful coastline, Vassili pointed different structures out and was very informative. He even stopped by a famous lake to show us and we took some pictures. When we got to cape sunion...what a sight! It was 7 euro each for entry to the temple and got to walk around for an hour or so. We made our way back where he was waiting and drove us back to our hotel. 5 star review, it was excellent! Highly recommend Vassili as your driver!
