Highlights
    What to Expect
    This more relaxing tour consists of sightseeing in Athens, a scenic seaside drive, and the magical Cape Sounio. Your day will begin with Acropolis Hill, the highlight of the tour. On the historical hill, you will have the experience of seeing the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Temple of the Athena Nike, the monumental gateway (Propylaea), the Erechtheum and of course the Parthenon the main temple for the virgin goddess Athena. Leaving the Acropolis we will steer towards the Temple Of Zeus passing by Hadrians Arch and following we will visit Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. Trailing on and driving aside from the national garden we will see the changing of the guard (Euzones) in front of the old palace, which is today Parliament House, high above the central square of Athens. Then traveling into the historical center of the city we will drive up to the highest hill of Athens, the hill of Lycabettus. On Lycabettus Hill, you’ll have the best panoramic view of the city, the hill of Acropolis and the Aegean Sea. Moving on and feeling hungry by now, a traditional Greek tavern with authentic Greek cooked dishes or fresh fish – seafood by the sea.

    After a satisfying lunch, we will have a pleasant drive along the coastline known as the Athenian Riviera and the southern suburbs. Passing through the uptown suburbs of Athens (Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) and making a first stop at the famous Vouliagmeni Lake, mineral – therapeutic – natural lake. Continuing our drive we will come across more isolated but charismatic areas with a breathtaking view of the Saronic Gulf which will take us to the archaeological site of Cape Sounio, the southeastern edge of the Attica Peninsula. On entering the site you will see the dominating Temple Of Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of the sea, surrounded by the remains of fornications, the gateway (portigos) and houses. Close by are also see the remains of the temple Athena Souniada. Besides its unique location and its archeological interest, Cape Sounio is also famous for its breathtaking sunset and view of the Greek Islands. It is rightly considered one of the most romantic places in Greece. And finally a relaxing drive back to Athens.
