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!

An hour and 15min away from their city, Cape Sounion is where the Athenians built at the dawn of their Golden Age, the majestic temple for Poseidon, God of the Sea. One of the most photographed temples in Greece and the most breathtaking view over the Aegean sea are here for you to discover!
