What will I see?

”Discover the most unique site that the ancient Greeks choose for a temple”

After having boarded the vehicle you will begin the drive along the coastal road of Athens toward Cape Sounion. Passing by resort villages you will admire views of the Saronic Gulf and the beauty of the sharply indented coastline fringed with beaches. Upon arrival at Cape Sounion, the imposing Temple of Poseidon makes an immediate impression. Standing some two hundred feet above the sea at the edge of a cliff, this 5th-century monument honoring the Greeks' beloved god of the sea Poseidon is one of the most breathtaking and deeply moving sights in the country. Fifteen of the original 34 columns of the Doric order remain on the temple that was built during the Golden Age of Perikles. This is where according to mythology, that a distraught King Aegeus threw himself off a cliff into the sea that bears his name. After experiencing this stunning temple, you will have the opportunity to take photos and enjoy refreshment on your own at the sites café before returning back to your starting point.
