The location offers one of the most beautiful views in the world. On a sunny summer day, you can see several islands such as Kea, Kythnos and Serifos at the southeast, and Aegina and the Peloponnese at the west. During your visit our guide will provide you with all the necessary information concerning the history and importance of the Temple. After our visit of the Temple we will head back to the coastal road where we will stop to rest and taste local snacks and beverages. Finally, we will head back to Athens.

“ This was a good tour to see some of the coastline south of Athens and to spend some time at Sounion. The van was very comfortable and the guide was quite knowledgeable and was willing to answer any questions the group had. ”

“We took this tour during our short stay in Athens with our cruise ship. Perfect for someone that want to see something different than the Acropolis. The temple of poseidon and the views during our drive were AMAZING!!!”
