We leave Athens for a wonderful drive (70 km / 43 miles) along the scenic coastal road known as "the Riviera of Attica" which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Alianthos) to Cape Sounion the southern-most point of the entire peninsula of Aemos (Balkans).Cape Sounion known also as Cape Kolónes is a precipitous rocky headland rising 60m from the sea. On the highest point of the headland, at its end are the columns of the ruined Temple of Poseidon with 6x13 exceptionally slender Doric columns. The Temple of Poseidon near the edge of the cliff forms a conspicuous landmark from the sea. An inscription confirmed the attribution to Poseidon. Another inscription simply has the name of Lord Byron - English poet and Philhellene - probably carved by him personally in the early 18th-century. Upon completion of the tour you will enjoy picnic on the beach!
