Cape Sounion Half-Day Sunset Tour From Athens

Starting from Athens and driving by the coastal Poseidon Avenue for approximately 70 km, passing by the most beautiful suburbs of Athens neighborhoods of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and along the coast of Attica, bathed by the waters of the Saronic Gulf, where the most popular beaches are, arrive at the idyllic area where is located the famous Temple of Poseidon, one of the most important ancient sanctuaries where the ancient Greeks worshiped it. The beauty of the intended Doric columns inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who engraved his name in one of the columns. According to the Greek mythology here, the King Aegean committed suicide jumping into the sea while he was waiting for the return of his son Theseus, who had gone to the Palace of Minos (Crete) to defeat the Minotaur, since then the Aegean Sea bears his name. This is a place that leaves a memorable experience for visitors through the magnificent sunsets.
