Itinerary

Pick up for your hotel or cruise ship, and pass by from coast line of Athens and Athenian Riviera for your first photo tour where we will have our first stop at the famous Lake of Vouliagmeni (for a coffee break before we visit Cape Sounio) a wonderful and so unusual natural beauty that offers the visitor true moments of relaxation.

Continue our tour to Cape Sounio which is the most popular destination since you will have the chance to admire the sunset over the Aegean Sea, as viewed from the ruins, is a sought-after spectacle. Continue driving along the Mediterranean coastline (if you wish we will have a stop for panoramic photos) in order to reach the second most popular site of the Greek capital "Cape Sounio". During the afternoon hours you will get to enjoy breathtaking sunset over the Aegean Sea, Cape Sounio and Temple of God Poseidon! Cape Sounio is located located 70 kilometres south-southeast of Athens, at the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula in Greece. Sounion is noted as the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea. According to legend, Cape Sounion is the spot where Aegeus, king of Athens, leapt to his death off the cliff, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea. The myth says that King Aegeus, anxiously looking out from Cape Sounion, devastated when he saw a black sail on his son Theseus's ship, returning from Crete. This led him to believe that his son had been killed in his contest with the dreaded Minotaur, a monster that was half man and half bull. The tour can start any time that you wish. Either for Sunset tour either morning tour. The duration of the tours is about 5 hours.
