Tours Culture & history Entry tickets Culinary & nightlife Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure

A comprehensive visit to three of the most fabulous and important archaeological sites of Eastern Attica: Vravron, Thorikos and the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion accompanied by irresistible Greek cuisine.


  • Be inspired by the celebrated, open-air archaeological site of Vravron
  • Be impressed by the Mycenaean ruins of the settlement of Thorikos and its fifth century BC theater with its rectangular orchestra
  • Enjoy a delicious meal at a hand picked Greek tavern
  • Revel at the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion


The day is off to an early start with a visit to Vravron, with its delightful museum and celebrated, open-air archaeological site. This coastal location, has been occupied from as far back as the Early Bronze Age. The sanctuary is said to be the place where  Agamemnon’s daughter, Iphigenia, with her brother Orestes, allegedly sought refuge after Artemis spared her from sacrifice by her father before the Trojan War.  Your visit to the site and the adjacent Archaeological Museum of Vravron will shed more light on the history of the cult of Artemis and give us a first-hand impression of what drew ancient people to settle and worship the goddess here. Afterwards, proceed south-east to Thorikos, inhabited since the fifth century BC. A fortified city guarding the all-important regional silver mines which enabled Athens to become the great maritime and geopolitical time that it was during its apogee.The fifth century BC theater with its unusual rectangular orchestra as well as the remnants of tombs dating back to the Mycenaean period, ‘the industrial quarter’ of Thorikos and the traces of houses, gateways and fortification walls are all important sites in the city. Following a hearty and delicious meal at a hand picked venue, return to Athens via Cape Sounion and its  celebrated temple perched on the final promontory of Attica and of mainland Greece. The return route will follow the coastal road of the Athenian Riviera and the fabulous views it affords.
