Athens – Cape Sounio

Cape Sounion is found about 70 km to the south-east of Athens, on the southernmost tip of Attica peninsula. Standing atop sheer cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea is the famous Temple of Poseidon. Ideal for a day trip, Cape Sounion is considered among the sites you should definitely visit if you come to Athens. Apart from the archaeological remains, Cape Sounion is also famous for its beautiful sunset and the magnificent view to the Aegean Sea, extending all the way to the island of Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day.
