Why we chose this tour

Our Sunset Cape Sounio Tour from Athens invites you to hop into a luxury air-conditioned bus that will spirit you away from the buzzing city and along the beautiful Athenian Riviera, offering vibrant vistas of the Saronic Gulf and incredible suburban villas. Once you arrive, you'll be filled in on local lore about Poseidon's Temple, and see for yourself why Homer had to include this place in the Odyssey. Watch the sun sink into the ocean from atop the temple ruins for an unforgettable evening.


Our Sunset Cape Sounio Tour from Athens is available Every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday, April through September. Cape Sounio offers one of the most incredible panoramic views in the world, and the monument itself has a long and critical role in both Greek history and mythology. Our luxury bus will you drive you along the coastline, allowing you to ooh and ahh over the crystalline Saronic Gulf and ogle at the villas in some of the most gorgeous Athenian suburbs along your journey to this incredible monument with unparalleled panoramic views.

Once you arrive, let your guide spin myth and history together to teach you about Poseidon’s Temple, which has been standing since the 5th century (BCE). Learn about famous visitors and the favorite local stories as you stroll through the ruins. As the sun beings to sink into the sea, take a moment to sit and sip a glass of wine, take a deep breath, and relax as you watch the last incandescent rays disappear over the glassy waters of the Aegean.
