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 and you will enjoy beverages and snacks provided by Parthenon Tours.

Meeting Point

“ Beautiful views on the way. Excellent tour. Brilliantly planned. They stopped the van on the way for photo stops and the time provided at the Temple was more than adequate. Lovely tour with very knowledgeable guides.”
Antonella Ricci
“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.”
