Booked for a day out but if I had my time in athens again I would have probaby prioritised other things as whilst the setting of the temple is impresssive it's a long way and after youve seen the Parthenon this pales in to insignificance. We also had a grey /cloudy day so perhaps with a sunset it would have been better but alas for us not

If you want to dive into Greek history and mythology, more specifically about Athena and Poseidon, this is your tour. Our guide Σταυρούλα did a brilliant job walking us through exciting historical facts and myths. One of the best guided tours I've ever taken. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience and for the great tips, Σταυρούλα.

Perfectly organized. Good friendly guide and excellent driver. It would have been better had the guide also accompanied the group up to the temple itself and say shown Byron's signature etc

Your tour will begin at the Halandri Metro station in Athens. You will meet your tour guide aboard the air-conditioned tour bus. Since the bus departs at 5:30 PM, you will reach the cape just in time to catch the enchanting sunset. Your guide will tell you several intriguing facts and myths about Cape Sounion. It’s interesting to note that Sounion is also mentioned in Homer’s legendary epic, The Odyssey.

The Temple of Poseidon was a popular destination for famous poets and writers from across the world. The English poet Lord Byron is said to have left his signature on the temple marble nearly two centuries ago. Once you are done exploring the temple, spend a few tranquil moments on the coast, watching the sun disappear below the horizon. On your way back, you can visit Athens Riviera and walk along the promenade. Several of the charming waterfront cafes are certainly worth a visit.
