Tour details

 The ideal tour for lovers of romance!

The Half Day Tour of Cape Sounion begins with a beautiful seaside drive along the Coast of Poseidon on the Aegean Sea which surrounds the Attica Region from South-West to South-East. On this side you see Island Salamis where the Naval Battle of Salamis between the Greeks and the Persians took place that brought the Golden Age of Athens to the victorious Athenians. The seaside drive continues to Marina of Zea which was on the main grain supply of Athens in Antiquity (Zea bread) and one the most expensive yacht marina nowadays. The first stop is short over the upper-class residential area of Piraeus, Kastela with its castle looking apartments to enjoy the coastal view of Athens and the beautiful leisure port of Microlimano (small port) located underneath. A great spot for pictures.


The drive continues along the coastline and past main venues of Olympic venues of the 2004 Olympics. 

Driving past the old airport and several marinas we reach the most expensive and luxurious area of the coast knows as Vouliagmeni or (the sunken). 

Going past the main heavily occupied area of Athens and entering the coast of Apolo it seems that the seawater becomes vividly blue. On this side, people relax and enjoy the scenery while driving past several small but still graphically beautiful areas where a great number of the city’s population enjoys countryside vacations even though this place is still located in the capital city.

After reaching the first high stop in Cape Sounion visitors have about 45’ to 60’ to explore the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon. This archaeological site consists of the ruined walls surrounding the landscape, the Propylea or main entrance, the foundations of the old town that were located inside the walls and the two loading bays that operated as a shipyard.

The tour ends with a beautiful seaside drive back to your hotel or cruise ship terminal from the same route, which is still magnificent during the day or the night. At this point, you have the option for a lunch stop or dinner stop in a nice seaside local restaurant.

NOTICE: Please check the sunset timetable first here!
You must set the tour start time 2 hours before the sunset.

Entrance Fees: Please visit the official website of the Greek Ministry of Culture for more information regarding ticket prices for the Poseidon’s Temple here and discount/free admission here.
