Full description
Enjoy a private 4 hour excursion to the southernmost point of Athens and visit the 5th-century Temple of Poseidon. On this tour that’s priced for up to 4 persons you’ll pass beautiful suburbs such as Glyfada, Voula, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza, on the Athenian Riviera. The drive will take you along 70 kilometers of coastline. Stop at Vouliagmeni Lake to enjoy the views. The healing properties of the lake water have been known since ancient times, and the lake is the only natural spa in Athens. After an hour’s drive you’ll arrive at Cape Sounio, home to the Temple of Poseidon, which was part of the Acropolis building program. Take in views of the Saronic Gulf at a local café or restaurant. The Temple was dedicated to the god of sea and is associated with many mythological tales. After enjoying an optional meal or refreshments, you’ll return to your Athens hotel or the cruise port.

Driver was super nice and did everything in his power to make sure we enjoyed the trip. However for 200 euros we were expecting a car a bit more confortable with fresh drinks and probably it would have been great to have deals available with entry tickets included (no tickets included nor for Vouliagmeni nor for Cap sounion).

Perfect! Very nice driver who first showed us some highlights in Athens and stopped there to take pictures. Then towards Cape Sounion with an explanation of various locations etc. At Cape Sounion had an explanation about the origin/history. Very worthwhile: all the time and all cooperation
