    Duration: 6 hours
    Location: Cape Sounion



    Cape Sounio sits at the southernmost tip of the Attica Peninsula, right where the Saronic Gulf opens up to the Aegean Sea. Overlooking the entrance to the bay, the Temple of Poseidon dominates the cape at a height of 60 meters above sea level.

    With its commanding view and strategic location, the temple of the god of the seas has been standing here since archaic times. The actual remains date back to the 5th century BC, after the previous temple was destroyed by the Persian King Xerxes I, when he raised Athens to the ground after he overcame King Leonidas at the battle of Thermopylae.

    Apart from the temple itself, Cape Sounio offers a cafeteria and restaurant strategically-placed for the magnificent view next to the antiquities site, as well as nearby taverns (optional) where you can enjoy your lunch by the sea – and, during the summer months, a quick swim would probably help stimulate the appetite.
