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.

Discover Greek flavours
Arrival at Lavrio.
Did you think Greek food was limited to "Greek salad", "feta cheese", "moussaka" and "souvlaki"? Think again!
Time to learn some new words! How about "melitzanosalata", "tzatziki", "gavros", "fava", "horta"!
It’s time to visit Lavrio, the miners’ town. We will go to one of the best restaurants in Lavrio situated in the town’s fish market dating from the 1800s.
Your guide will introduce you to Greek food and drink and - if we are lucky - the restaurant owner will play some traditional Greek music for us.
Now is the best time to learn how you can prepare those delicious dishes at home and sip the local ouzo and tsipouro!
There will also be time for a walk around Lavrio, where you can take night shots of the neoclassical buildings and marina.
