Athenian Riviera & Sunset in Sounio Private Tour
Athenian Riviera & Sunset in Sounio (Driving private tour with English speaking driver)
DURATION 4 Hours
This driving tour is highly recommended in the afternoon
This private tour is a great travel experience. Upon your arrival at the Temple of Poseidon you will enjoy the endless blue of the Aegean, if it is late in the afternoon you will enjoy the most amazing sunset you have ever seen. A fantastic image of the sun setting behind the mountains of the Argosaronic islands that will remain in your memory forever.
Without special recommendations, the temple of Poseidon in Sounio emits the most special energy you will ever encounter in an archaeological site!
The Temple of Poseidon in Sounio has always had a special place in the hearts of visitors to Athens. Built at the same time as the Parthenon, during the Golden Age of Pericles, it was not just a place of worship for the god of the sea (inside the temple, right in the center, there was an imposing statue of Poseidon with a height of more than 6 meters). Its prominent position above the sea at the southeastern tip of Attica made the temple a sign to sailors that they were near Piraeus.
Less than an hour away from Athens (by car), the temple of Poseidon continues to this day to be a magnet for visitors, who, in addition to the archaeological site, enjoy the nearby beach. Really, where else can you swim in crystal clear waters with a view of the marble columns of an ancient Greek temple?
You will have already known the Athenian Riviera with its beaches, bars and restaurants. But the beach of Sounio, with its magnificent view of the Saronic Gulf, has something special: a magical aura that makes you feel like you are on an island. And an incredible view. When the horizon is clear, Kea, Kythnos, even Serifos to the southeast and Aegina to the west can be seen from the temple of Poseidon. Your experience will be completed in the best way by one of the most magical sunsets of your life…
Starting from Athens or Piraeus we will pass through the wonderful suburbs of Palaio Faliro, Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni Varkiza, also from the resorts of Saronida and Anavyssos to end up in the amazing Sounio
Free time for photos and to enjoy the wonderful view and return to Athens in the early evening.
