Description

An #inspiredbytheSun adventure- Visited throughout history by writers and poets, the sunset at Sounion is one of a kind in its class. We will be taking a scenic route along the Attica coastline where you will enjoy views of several islets, finally arriving at Cape Sounio and the Temple of Poseidon. En route, you get the chance to enjoy beautiful sky colors along with chill music sounds. Our trained tour leader will be there to answer any questions you may have and give you as much information as you feel you need and not to overwhelm you. Upon arrival, you have the chance to visit the Temple of Poseidon. Constructed during Athens Golden Age, it is during this time that Athens enjoyed political hegemony, economic growth, and cultural flourishing. Dedicated to Poseidon, the god of the sea, this temple was built using white marble quarried locally. Positioned at an ideal angle to enjoy the view of both the Aegean sea and the Saronic Gulf, you don’t want to miss this sunset. Relax, take it in, and enjoy a complimentary drink on us! On our way back to Athens, we must let you know- Athens runs 24/7 and it is not uncommon for Athenians to spend their evenings by the beach until the early morning hours. Should you wish to continue on into the night our team can drop you off at one of the most popular beach bars. Let us know and we will be happy to help!
