Poseidon's temple on the edge of mainland Greece

Fill your mind with unforgettable images of Apollo's coast to discover the temple of Poseidon in this shore excursion!!! Discover the glorious remnants of the ancient Athenian history and enjoy a seaside drive to Cape Sounion that you will never forget! Ancient Athens supply and strategic point where most of the mystical way of living is explained behind the beginning of the naval battle of Salamis that changed the course of European history.

*if you want to see the sunset book with start time being 18:00!!!


This is a scenic tour. We start driving on Poseidon's coast, explore the majority of yacht marinas, Olympic Games facilities and old decommissioned warships of the Second World War and even a trireme warship from the 6th century BC. The end of Poseidon's coastline is the beginning of the Apollo's coast to the south-east side of Athens. We drive past many beaches, seaside settlements with stunning scenery until the temple of Poseidon becomes visible in the horizon. We visit the temple of Poseidon which stands on the peak of the southernmost point of mainland Greece overlooking the Aegean Sea. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset if you start the tour in the afternoon. On the way back a short stop for lunch of dinner is possible in a beautiful seaside tavern I personally recommend.

A Recent Review of this tour

We booked a total of 3 excursions with Dimitris. He is professional, friendly, and a good driver. His Mercedes van is as described - very clean, excellent AC, and video screens for presentations. This Cape Sounion tour was excellent. We arrived in time for the beginning of sunset to see the amazing Temple of Poseidon. Along the way, he pointed out various sights and told us relevant history and politics. He also took us to a seaside restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed the trip and highly recommend it!
