Once are be out of the city, you will enjoy the open sea along with the beaches, the small bays and the mountains around them. Our experienced drivers will allow you to lay back and enjoy the ride. At our destination the Temple of Poseidon stands gazing upon the Aegean Sea.
The foundation of the temple that was mostly made out of marble was set in the fifth century but it took longer to complete as the temple suffered a lot of damage. Even though only the remains have survived, the visitors are still impressed by its beauty and glory that the nature around it contributes to make it more majestic. Sounion was very important for many generations as shown by the findings, with the oldest one being from 600 b. C. If your timetable allows it, make sure that you don’t miss the spectacular sunset. On our way back to the city we will stop so that you will enjoy your meal at a restaurant with view at the sea.
