Temple of Poseidon and Cape of Sounio Sunset Tour:
Drive to the Athenian Riviera by driving down the south shore. Easily approach the otherwise inaccessible Sounion. The magnificent panorama that surrounds the Sounion promontory will captivate you. This location was venerated by the ancient Greeks as sacred land devoted to the gods Poseidon and Athena. Admire the Temple of Poseidon, located on the cliff's edge 70 metres above the sea. Walk the beautiful ground of the Sounion, one of the sites mentioned in Homer's Odyssey.
 
Stand on the same cliff where King Aegeus is supposed to have thrown himself. According to Greek legend, Aegeus instructed his son Theseus that if he fought the Minotaur, he should return to Athens with ships with white sails. When Aegeus saw Theseus' dark sails, he hurled himself from the Sounion in despair. Observe the sunset over this renowned vista.
