Full description
Following collection from your Athens accommodation, pass through some of the city's most scenic suburbs whilst following a coastal road. Your first stop is to Lake Vouliagmeni, a hidden treasure of the Athenian Riviera. Lake Vouliagmeni has a steady temperature all year round, ranging between 18-24 degrees Celsius. Its water is brackish, containing underground sea water mixed with the water of a spring. This makes it an ideal location for swimmers who visit the lake to profit from its mineral-rich water. Following the lake, continue along the coastal road whilst admiring the green and rocky coastline of Attica on your way to Cape Sounion. As you approach the promontory, the columns of the Temple of Poseidon are visible from the road, standing proudly on top of a hill and dominating the surroundings. The temple was erected to honor the ancient Greek God of the Sea, Poseidon. On a lower hill, opposite Cape Sounion, you can discover the ruins of a second ancient temple that was built to honor Goddess Athena. Take your time in admiring the infinite blue of the Aegean Sea, as no land catches your eye except for scattered islands in the open sea. Admire the beautiful sunset colors in the sky from the highest point of the hill, following which you return to Athens following the same route.

nous n'avions le temps que pour le temple de Poséidon et le coucher de soleil, l'essentiel. En revanche le lac de Vouliagméni de nuit sur le parking c'est nul. L'hiver (càd des novembre) il faut partir en début d'après midi ou fin de matinée pour apprécier le lac puis le Cap.

Punctual driver, very friendly and enthusiastic guide who told me lots of interesting facts, beautiful drive along the coast, great view at the lake and the Temple of Poseidon. I am glad I booked this tour.
