Once there, you will be dazzled by the famous landscapes that surround Sounion. In the times of the ancient Greeks, this site was revered as sacred ground dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena. You can marvel at the Temple of Poseidon, which perched upon the cliff’s edge 70 meters above the sea. Later, walk the blessed earth of Sounion, one of the places sung about it in Homer’s Odyssey. You can then stand upon the same cliff where it is said King Aegeus threw himself off. The tale is told in Greek mythology that Aegeus told his son Theseus that if he defeated the Minotaur, he should return to Athens with ships bearing white sails. Theseus forgot this request, and when Aegeus saw Theseus’ black sails, he threw himself from the Sounion in despair. While here, you can watch the sunset over this legendary horizon.

What people are saying about Sounion

Everything flawless! It's great that we could also use the yellow and blue HopOn HopOff bus for 2 days with this ticket. On the second day we used it directly for the trip to Piraeus. However, the bus for the Cape Sounion trip was a closed coach.

Amazing trip on an air conditioned coach, the experience at the Temple was incredible! Everyone was very friendly and spoke multiple languages. We then used the sightseeing bus the next day to go to Lake Vouliagmeni which was wonderful!

Easy way of getting to Cape Sounion with the benefit of the hop on hop off bus ticket a convenient extra inclusion.

It's a bus trip to Sounioun Cape + Hop on hop off bus ticket. All good.

The site is amazing at sunset, enjoyed toasting the setting sun...
