Sunset at Cape Sounion


Our private tour starts with the crossing of the Athens golden coastal road, named Poseidonos Av. We shall pass via marvelous coastal places/villages such as Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, where we shall stop & have a short visit at the unique Lake of Vouliagmeni. Our next stop/visit is the luxurious place of Laimos of Vouliagmeni where you shall have the opportunity to admire a marvelous beach & to take photos with the background of the Saronic Gulf.

After passing interesting little coves, our driving continues via Varkiza (passing through an old rocky tunnel), Saronida, Fokaia (traditional fishing village) until the southern end of Attika named Cape of Sounion. You will visit the ruins in the archaeological area where the Temple of Poseidon (God of the Sea) dominates.

The place allows you to admire the deep blue of the Aegean sea & to take unique photos. If you have the choice to visit the Cape of Sounion during afternoon/evening hours you will gain an unforgettable experience admiring one of the best romantic sunsets with the background of the Aegean Sea. Our private tour concludes with the return in our starting place. Contact us for further details.

Highly recommended as a Sunset tour!
