An invitation to culture and relaxation, this tour is full of scenic and breathtaking images. We start the tour with a wonderful drive along the scenic southern suburb coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of the most beautiful suburbs of Athens (Faliro, Aimo, Kalamaki , Helleniko ,Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, Sounion).
As we approach Cape Sounion, it rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. At Cape Sounio where you will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea. Land masses to the west stand out in sharp profile: the island of Aegina backed by the mountains of the Peloponnese. The beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns.
After your visit to the temple you will have time to take your pictures and stop for coffee or refreshments by the site.
