Cape Sounion is only 45 miles (70 kilometers) from Athens, making it the perfect lazy afternoon destination. The Cape's Temple of Poseidon is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea. The view across the Aegean is magnificent with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world, extending all the way to Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day. The Temple of Poseidon was built in 44 B.C., and many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns has a graffiti left by none other than Lord Byron in the early 1800s. The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.

Excellent tour and the guides was extremely helpful. The lunch that was included in the tour was the best lunch we had in Greece. We are still talking about it after we return from the trip.

It was another class. The crown of Athens the acropolis and cape sounion. Again, the guide was very informative and good, thumps up to the whole team. We knew the driver Dimitrios already from the 7 day tour. I loved the Acropolis, the included lunch in the Plaka restaurant and obviously, the cape sounion.
