Cape Sounion tour
Departure from Athens: at 2:30pm for the afternoon tour and between 6pm-7pm for the sunset tour
Return in Athens: the afternoon tour returns at approx. 7:00pm and the sunset tour around 9:30pm
Highlights: The tour's focal point is the Temple of Poseidon (5th century B.C.) at the edge of cape Sounio. The bus follows the coastal road to Sounion and passes through some of the best suburbs in Athens (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza). The Temple of Poseidon has 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.
If you take the evening departure from Athens, you will have the opportunity to admire one of the most amazing sunsets accompanied by a glass of wine.
