Visit two of the most important cultural sites of Ancient Greece on the Athens and Cape Sounion
Visit two of the most important cultural sites of Ancient Greece on the Athens and Cape Sounion full day Tour. Explore the world renowned Acropolis of Athens and see the fabled Cape Sounion, where you can still see the majestic remains of the Temple of Poseidon, the highlight of the Cape Sounion portion of the tour.
From Athena to Poseidon private tour begins with the short ascent to the Acropolis. Stroll around the ancient citadel while your professional expert tour guide relates to you the fascinating history of such monuments as the Temple of Athena Nike, the Theatre of Dionysus and, of course, the majestic Parthenon.
Cape Sounion has long played an important part in Greek mythology and history, and the first recorded mention of it occurs in the Odyssey, as the last safe landing before Poseidon scattered the returning Greek navy. As god of the sea, Poseidon was hugely important to the Greeks, and the scale of the Temple at Cape Sounion reflects that. Cape Sounion tours have attracted celebrities in the past – the Romantic poet Byron’s name is inscribed in a pillar. After time to explore the Temple and its surroundings, the tour returns to Athens.
