Ancient and contemporary faces of Athens S coast <includes transportation>


A scenic drive along the South coast and its cosmopolitan suburbs: the so-called "Athenian Riviera" and the Temple of Poseidon, situated majestically at Cape Sounio, the edge of the land of Attica.
Immerse yourselves in the reflections of the sunlight in the water of the Aegean sea and the beauty of one of the most unforgettable landscapes of our country.

On our way back to the city, we make a stop to introduce you to the new "entry" in Athens's landmarks: the Stavros Niarchos foundation, where the National Library and the National Opera will find their new home in 2018, offers us among other things the best "watchtower" of the city, with a 360view of Athens, Piraeus and the surroundings!
