Nous avons apprécié le chauffeur du bus ainsi que la guide Maria. Cependant, le fait que les billets d'entrée ne soient pas comptés dans le tarif de l'excursion nous a beaucoup déçu.

The tour will start from Athens and will take you along the south coast towards the Athens Riviera. You will travel in a premium air-conditioned bus, as you take in the beautiful scenery on the journey. An English speaking guide and escort will accompany your group, giving you a great deal of insight into the area. You will soon reach the Sounion, and be dazzled by the spectacular landscape around you. The Sounion is one of the prominent areas mentioned in Homer’s epic Odyssey. In ancient Greece, the area was a sacred ground dedicated to Athena and Poseidon.

You can see the marvelous Temple of Poseidon perched on the edge of a cliff, 70 meters above water level. Upgrade your tickets to include entry to this attraction.

Gaze across the Aegean Sea from the cliff, where legend says King Aegeus threw himself off. Your guide will talk about the story behind Aegeus throwing himself off the cliff, while also talking about the significance of the area and its history. You can catch a breathtaking sunset over the sea, which is perfect for some memorable photos.
