Sounion Tour

Prior to our Sail Greece Adventure, we have arranged a little tour/transfer to see the Temple of Poseidon and get us to our sailing yachts.  I can’t wait …

Saturday, June 1.  Our motorcoach with English speaking guide picks us up in Athens.  We drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf. Passing through some of the peninsula’s most beautiful suburbs – elegant areas of Blyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza. We will stop for lunch at a coastal spot. We arrive at Cape Sounio where we will visit the 5th century B.C. Temple of Poseidon with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world. On a clear day you can see at least seven Cyclades islands. The Doric columns of local marble have 16 flutings instead of the usual 34. The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.  We then enjoy a leisurely cruise up the east to the town of Lavrion where are yachts lie.  We board by 6pm.
