Book this tour and discover the Athenian riviera through a breathtaking drive ending at Sounion

Departing from Piraeus you will pass by the Stadium of Irinis & Filias. You will then enter Poseidon avenue and cross the aristocratic district of Glyfada. Following the road next to the sea, you will have a panoramic view for about one hour until arriving to Sounion. There will be enough time for a guided tour and beautiful pictures to be taken.

 Along the enchanting Attic coastline with its jagged inlets, we reach Cape Sounion, at the tip of which the most famous monument in Greece after the Parthenon: the Temple of Poseidon. Besides the remains of the walls fortified in 409 BC for the Peloponnesian War and the small propylaia leading into the sanctuary, there still stand the 16 tall, graceful columns of the Temple. Built in 444-440 BC by the same architect, responsible for the temple of Hephaestos of the Athenian Agora and the temple of Nemesis at Ramnous, it had 6 columns on the ends and 13 on the sides, each with 16 grooves instead of the usual 20, to provide better resistance to erosion by the sea elements, and a frieze sculptured on the architrave, showing exploits of Thesus, the Gigantomachy and Centaurs and Lapiths in battle. On the facing hill, the remains of the Sanctuary of Athena Sounion.

At the end, you will take the same road back to the port of Piraeus.
