The Scenic Drive Along the Athenian Riviera
We suggest departing around 9am to 9:30am, but you can leave as late as 4pm in case you want to stay for a late dinner (given Greeks eat at around 9pm). Our drivers will provide you with the best Greek hospitality during the trip. As you drive along the scenic Athenian Riviera, you will be mesmerized by the picturesque view of the shining blue water of the sea. It’s a natural piece of art that deserves to be admired.
Explore the Temple of Poseidon
We plan to arrive at Sounio around 10:30am to 11:00am, where you will first visit the temple of Poseidon and take a tour around the archaeological site, which has some remnants from the temple of Athena Sounias. Moreover, the temple of Poseidon is one of the most significant monuments of the Athenian Riviera, and you can’t miss the opportunity to explore it.
Swim in the Crystal-Clear Waters of the Beach
After exploring the temple of Poseidon, it’s time to take a swim at the beach. The beach has crystal clear water and is a true natural wonder. We highly recommend taking a refreshing swim before savoring the delicious Greek cuisine.
Savor Traditional Greek Cuisine
After swimming, it’s time to indulge in the delicious traditional Greek cuisine at one of the many restaurants near the coast that serve wonderful seafood dishes. You can savor the Greek cuisine with a view of the Athenian Riviera, which is a breathtaking sight.
The Athenian Sunset
Finally, the best part of the trip is to return to the temple of Poseidon and take in the beautiful Athenian sunset in the evening. It’s an unforgettable experience that will remain in your memory forever.
