Why we chose this tour

Our Cape Sounio Half Day Tour from Athens lets you take a break from the hustle and bustle of Athenian city life and retreat into the awe-inspiring views available at Cape Sounio. The monument is close enough to allow convenient travel, and far enough away that you feel like you're in a whole new world. Enjoy a scenic drive along the way to the cape, taking a look at the breathtaking coastal views. Once you've arrived, let your guide weave a web of myths and stories about Poseidon's temple, and its famous visitors through the ages.


Our Cape Sounio Half Day Tour from Athens is available daily and ensures that your mini city-break is as painless and smooth as possible. Begin your day with a scenic drive along the Athenian Riviera’s coastal road, which offers unparalleled views of the Saronic Gulf’s crystal waters, idyllic beaches, and luxurious suburbs. You’ll see Cape Sounio rising in the distance; it’s a monument that rises suddenly out the sea, and it is always a sight that stops you with its wonder.

Embrace the sense of awe that floods your body as you stand in the Temple of Poseidon and take in one of the most expansive panoramic views in the world, and see how many islands you can spot(our record so far is 7). You’ll be perched on a cliff as you look out to the islands and coast, but be cautious and stay back from the 197 foot drop into the waters below. Once you’ve marveled at the natural beauty, take your time exploring the ruins of this 5th century temple decided to Poseidon, ruler of the sea. Look closely at the columns that have survived and see if you can spot any ancient graffiti….Lord Byron left a message there that’s waiting for you to discover it.
