Stop At: Temple of Poseidon, Cape Sounio, Sounio 195 00 Greece

Take this private Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip from Athens and feel totally relaxed. After pickup from your hotel, settle into your air-conditioned private luxury car or mini van, destined for Cape Sounion.

Then, enjoy the scenic drive along the Saronic Gulf, passing beaches and seaside resorts. En route, hear from your private driver about Cape Sounion and why it provided the perfect location for the ancient Greek Temple of Poseidon, built on the promontory between 444 and 440 BC. Moreover, learn how the temple stands on the site of an older version and acted as a beacon for ancient sailors.

On arrival, admire the white columns perched above the sea. Likewise, wander around the ruins and view the signature of Lord Byron, carved here in the early 1800s.

Absorb the far-reaching views over the Aegean and take unique photos. After this ode to Ancient times, visit a picturesque seaside tavern with great views of the Temple and enjoy a delightful meal and a fine wine. As you return, your driver will drive you to the best ice cream store for a waffle with ice cream.
