DescriptionAfter traveling for a few kilometers through the South Coast and the Athenian Riviera, you will be bedazzled by the famous landscapes which surround Sounion. Sounion (or Sunium) was an important ancient Greek religious sanctuary dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena. Spectacularly located on a promontory in southern Attica, the site is dominated by the temple of Poseidon perched 70 meters above the sea on the cliff edge. Sounion is the setting for several episodes in Greek mythology, and is specifically mentioned as a place of religious significance in Homer’s Odyssey. In some myths, this is also the spot where the Athenian king Aegeus threw himself into the sea in despair upon having sighted the black sail of his son Theseus’ ship returning from Crete after his battle with the Minotaur. If you are keen on visiting the outskirts of Athens, such as Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, you will be able to do so with a private tour. In a luxury limousine van with a private driver, you will be driven along to the Athens Riviera down to the famous Cape Sounion and back to Athens or Piraeus.
