Explore Greece beyond the city of Athens and enjoy nature views, Greek ruins, and a short history course on this afternoon half-day tour of Cape Sounio! Start off your tour with a peaceful drive along a scenic coastal road for a stunning view of the Saronic Gulf, its islands, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the area. You'll continue driving up to Cape Sounio until you reach the Temple of Poseidon, one of Greece's most-photographed monuments. Marvel at the impressive Doric columns as you learn about the culture and history of Ancient Greece with the help of your English-speaking tour guide. Explore the ancient ruins, inspecting each column closely, and maybe even spot the graffito left by the English poet Lord Byron himself! You'll also get a picturesque view of the Aegean Sea and watch the setting sun paint the white columns, right before you head back to Athens.
