Sounio by sunset and culinary night

Enjoy local way of life

Enjoy a laid-back, full-day tour of the historic Attica region, ending at Cape Sounio in time to watch the sunset. The day will start with a leisurely swim at one of the most scenic beaches of the region, where you can relax in the Mediterranean sun and swim in the Aegean Sea.

Continue to Cape Sounio to explore the white marble Temple of Poseidon, perched high above the sea. Of the original 42 columns, 15 are still standing, casting a stunning silhouette against the bright blue sky. Your guide will tell you the story of the creation of the Aegean Sea and this temple to the god of the seas - and one of the most powerful gods of Olympus, according to Greek mythology.

Last, but not least, drive to the sea port and former silver mining town of Lavrio, and explore the old fish market. Then, enjoy typical Greek delicacies, served with the best quality wines, raki, and ouzo. Sit back and relax to some traditional Greek music, and watch the sun set over the glittering sea.
