Athens: Blue Hop-on-Hop-off Bus and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

1. Athens: Blue Hop-on-Hop-off Bus and Cape Sounion Sunset Tour

Temple of Poseidon and Cape of Sounio sunset tour: You will drive along the south coast to the Athenian Riviera, which will allow you to easily reach the otherwise hard-to-get-to Sounion. 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

We had a great bus tour with this company. Was on time, instructions was clear. We did the evening tour ride . It was a long drive to get there. Sunset pictures turn out great! And the extra 2 days pass for the city was being to good use. I used it for the ride from the airport to my hotel.

Very good and friendly tour guide. The ride was over an hour long each way. Entrance Ticket to Temple of Poseidon not included. Make sure you research a way to get back to your destination at the end of the tour. We got to our stop about 10:45 pm. Blue bus service ends at 8 pm.

Nice trip. Punctual and friendly. With the audio guide in your language it is perfect. Road views of the Athenian Riverside are spectacular. The Cape and the temple must be seen
