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

Booking was very easy, got tickets by mail. And valid for hop-on-off bus (valid for 2 days) and excursion. We really enjoyed the trip to Cape Sounion. Our meeting point was at the old parliament, within walking distance from us. Picked up by minibus/excursion was in a small group which is very convenient. The short photo stop at a lake was nice. Possibility to stop at the restaurant at Cape Sounion before sunset, time is generous. Sunset was fantastic, the temple well preserved. We can only recommend the tour. In the morning we used the hop-on/off bus. Was also very informative and you get a good overview of the history of Athens and its sights. Value for money was very good.

The place is delightful both from the point of view of nature and from the point of view of human talents! It is simply amazing that in 5 centuries BC it was possible to build such a thing. Everything is very well organized. The commentary on the way could have been more interesting. The views on the way are wonderful, we saw all the Athenian beaches. Overall, I liked it very much!

the bus is a great way to get around the major attractions and see the city. the trip to Cape Sounion was spectacular, and the audio guide very interesting

Great service, all information was easy to get (emails, reminder message etc.), very friendly driver and beautiful place to visit

It's worth it to be there. Unrealistically beautiful view and sunset from the cape, just unforgettable!
