Write a review
Departure from:
Athens, Attica, Loutraki

This is an incredibly beautiful place - Greek "end of the world". It is located at the southernmost point of continental Greece and Attica, in 69 km from the center of Athens. Cape Sounion was known from the Homeric times as a sacred place. To this day it’s preserved the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, which was built in the middle of the V century BC - "Golden Age of Pericles". Here from a height of 60 meters above sea level on the edge of a steep rock you can enjoy spectacular views of the Aegean Sea and the nearest islands. The road to the cape passes through beautiful resort suburb of Athens - Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, lying along the coast of the Saronic Gulf. Such as sunsets on the Cape Sounion, there is nowhere else on the earth. Here is the ideal place for those whose soul is looking for romance and delight from the beauty of nature and unforgettable landscapes.

The belief that if you make a wish in the temple of Poseidon at sunset, it will be fulfilled for sure makes this place especially mysterious. On the way to Sounion we’ll stop at the lake with radon hot sources - Vouliagmeni. Who wants can go swimming.
