Enjoy the full attention of your expert guide on this private tour.Description
Start your Viator Exclusive with a pick up from your centrally located Athens hotel and head south along the scenic Attica Riviera. Enjoy the views over the Saronic Gulf and pass pretty seaside villages, cliffs and beaches as you follow the winding coastal road.
After about 90 minutes, arrive at Cape Sounion, the promontory at Attica’s southernmost tip that looks directly over the Aegean Sea. Here, head for the star attraction — the stunning Temple of Poseidon. Dating to 44 BC, this semi-ruined Greek temple was dedicated to the god of the sea. Admire the Doric columns as your guide reveals the history and legends that shroud the site, and check out the graffiti carved on one of the columns by the poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.
Take time to absorb the views, too. Gazing out from here feels like you’re on the bow of a ship, with the waves crashing below. The vistas stretch far across the Aegean and extend all the way to the Peloponnese on clear days.
After your visit, take the scenic, 45-minute journey to Vouliagmeni, one of Attica’s most beautiful spots. Here, take your table at the acclaimed restaurant perched above Vouliagmeni Bay. Linger over a delicious 3-course meal made using fresh, seasonal ingredients, and admire the breathtaking views over the bay as you enjoy your meal — it’s a magical setting.
Once your meal is over, return to Athens, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.Highlights
