Enjoy the view of small tucked away beaches with sandy or rocky shores, crystal-clear sparkling water and a perfectly blue sky along the way and delight your senses, mind and soul while taking this gorgeous route to get to one of Greece’s most idyllic spots, Cape Sounio.

From a distance, you can marvel the ruins of the imposing temple of Poseidon, a characteristic example of classical architecture of the 5th century BC. This is the spot where the ancient Athenians chose to honor their god Poseidon, within a fortress constructed to protect their coastline. It was here that the Sanctuary of Athena was also built, for the worship of their city-state’s patron goddess.

Centuries after its decline, which occurred during the Peloponnesian Wars, a foreigner who loved Greece, a philhellene inspired by the magnitude of the land and its history, the English poet Lord Byron was enchanted by this place and praised its virtues. Later, systematic excavations of the ruins revealed Sounio which would shine once again.

Millions of visitors from around the globe also come here to gaze upon the sun setting in the Saronic Gulf. A memory that stays with them for a lifetime …
