greek freestone columnsDepartures: All year round

Duration: 1/2 day – Seat in Coach or Private Tour available.


A perfect, lazy afternoon drive along the coastal road from Athens, enjoy a splendid view of
the Saronic Gulf.  Pass through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs including Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza.  As you approach, Cape Sounion rises like a sheer cliff out of the sea. Visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world. The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea. The beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired many poets, including Lord Byron who carved his name on one of the columns.
