Full description
Drive along the coastal road, passing the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza to the southern most point of Attica, Cape Sounion, where the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon stand.

Cape Sounion is a promontory located 69 kilometers south southeast of Athens, at the southernmost tip of the Attica. According to Greek mythology, Cape Sounion is the spot where Aegeus, King of Athens, leapt to his death off the cliff, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea.

On the way, you will have splendid views of the Saronic Gulf and the little islands offshore.  After visiting the Temple of Poseidon, have time to walk at leisure on the rocky promontory of Sounion. Return to Athens by the same route.
