Half-day Private Tour to Cape Sounion
Our half-day taxi tour from Athens to Cape Sounion has been carefully planned to allow you to admire one of the most scenic drives near Athens, in the prefecture of Attica.
Driving along the wonderful coastal road that connects downtown with the splendid southern suburbs of Athens, our taxi tour guides will show you the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni and the small picturesque settlements and seaside resorts of Palaia Fokaia, Lagonissi and Saronida.
In less than an hour you will arrive to Cape Sounion that lies beneath the imposing Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea. Overlooking the Aegean Sea and the islands of the Saronic Gulf, the Temple of Poseidon is one of the major tourist attractions and picturesque settings in this historical city.
Our sightseeing tour includes a visit to the archaeological site where you can admire the remains of the Poseidon Temple perched on the headland and bear the engraved name of Romantic Poet Byron from England. The site is surrounded by sea on three sides and offers spectacular view to the Aegean Sea.
Our experienced drivers can bring you to the nearby seaside towns and villages, where you can enjoy a lovely Mediterranean meal while relishing the refreshing sea breeze and the view to the deep blue waters of the Gulf and the small offshore islands.
