Full Day tour up to 9 hours... We combine Athens & Cape Sounion
Athens Sounion private tour gives you an opportunity to observe the striking contrasts that make Athens such a fascinating city and of course our next visit it will be Cape Sounion and Poseidon Temple, located at South part of Attica, surrounded by the Aegean Sea.
You'll be taken to see the center of the city. On our way to the Acropolis you will see the Old City (Plaka) the Roman Agora, Hadrian's Library, the Ancient Athenian Agora, Thesseon, and the Pnyx "The hill of Democracy". You will also climb the Acropolis to see the famous theaters of Dionysus and Herodes Atticus and the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, the Erechteion and finally, "the harmony between material and spirit", the monument that puts "order in the mind", the Parthenon and have time to visit its Museum.
Athens Sounion private tour leaves Athens for a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf. Passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (elegant areas of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) we will arrive at Cape Sounion where you will visit the 5th century B.C. temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world (on a clear day you can see at least seven islands). What about a lunch in front water? The tour is private and flexible and we know the best spots...No far is the picturesque Port of Lavrion... If there is time we will included it in our schedule... We will return to Athens through mainland.
