TOUR TO CAPE SOUNION
This tour could be easily combined with a downtown Athens city tour.
Cape Sounion is about one hour drive from downtown Athens, situated at the southernmost point of Attica region. As we drive along the shoreline, Attica’s most beautiful beaches are on our right.
There you can visit the ancient Temple of God Poseidon the dominant of the seas, as well as the ruins of the Temple of the Goddess Athena “Sounias” (literally from Sounion).
Due to the importance of its immense environmental value, in modern years and more specifically in 1974, the whole area was declared as National Park.
During the excursion – and upon relevant request - a professional guide could be of your assistance, to accompany you all throughout your trip and visits to archaeological sites and museums.
We strongly recommend that, as the greek legislation excludes professional drivers from entering and walking around these places accompanying their clients, granting this task to the union of the greek professional guides.
