Next, we'll see the evzones in their picturesque uniforms and the Presidential Mansion on Herod Atticus Street.
Of course, you can't miss the Acropolis--the trademark of Athens. The ancient "high city" is topped with marble temples dedicated to the city's goddess Athena and dates back to the Late Bronze Age. Following your climb to the top, you will visit these architectural masterpieces: the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and, finally, the magnificent Parthenon.
Now it's time to make your way to the southern-most point of Attica--Cape Sounion. Enjoy a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf and the little islands offshore before coming to the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon.
Visit the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, constructed in the 5th century BC over the ruins of a temple from the Archaic Period, perched above the sea at a height of nearly 200 feet. The 20-foot columns of the temple were intended to resist the weathering action of the sea air, and you can still see them there today.
