What You Can Expect

Athens Super Saver: Acropolis Walking Tour plus Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Half-Day Trip

Temple of Poseidon

Acropolis Walking Tour (3 hours): 

Meet your guide near Syntagma Square, and see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Greek Parliament, where the Changing of the Guard ceremony tales place.

Next, stretch your legs around the National Gardens, and admire sights like Zappeion Congress Hall, Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Continue through the paved streets of Plaka — the heart of Athens’ Old Town — and then follow the pedestrianized Dionyssiou Areopagitou walkway up to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis.

At the top, enter (own expense) this magnificent complex of sun-baked temples and take a guided tour of its star attractions. Stroll around the Temple of Athena Nike and the Propylaea, the Acropolis’ gateway, as you learn about their history; and marvel at the centerpiece: the Parthenon.

Having explored the main monuments, your tour finishes at the Acropolis. Say goodbye to your guide and enjoy around two hours at leisure before the start of your afternoon trip.


Afternoon Cape Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Trip (4 hours):
In the afternoon, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you venture south to Cape Sounion. Along the way, admire the picturesque beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear stories of the Cape, the rocky promontory at the tip of the Attica peninsula, and its famous, ancient Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the phenomenal sea views and if the weather is clear, cast your eyes over the island of Kea in the distance.


Admire the Doric columns of the 5th century BC temple, and discover the Greek myths that surround the building. Be sure, too, to check out the inscription carved by the English poet Lord Byron on one of the columns in the early 1800s.



Afterward, return to Athens where your tour concludes at your hotel or the closest point to your accommodation.

Great tour of the Acropolis. Guide was wonderful and very knowledgable. The trip out to Cape Sounion seemed to be run by a different group and they weren't as good. The ride was long and not a lot of information given. When you got out there I think we spent way more time there than we needed to but I understand you have to justify the trip out there so you can't just spend 30 minutes and leave. Also, it was about 94 degrees F and being out in the sun all day just got to us so that could be why the afternoon wasn't as good as the morning.

This is a must when you go to Athens. Make sure you wear tennis shoes and if in summer a hat. Bring water. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. There is a lot of walking and plenty of ancient history to absorb.

The Acropolis walking tour was amazing. To be that close to history was phenomenal and our tour guide Pantelis did a wonderful job of educating us about so many of the aspects of that era. We also had some free time to really see the Acropolis and Parthenon.
We then walked back to our meeting place where we had a short lunch break.
After lunch we took a bus to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. It was a beautiful drive along the coast and our new guide Effie did an excellent job of describing the sights along the way. She also gave us the history of the Temple of Poseidon.
There is a lot of walking on uneven ground for both of these tours, so if you can't navigate hills and rough terrain I would not recommend this tour. If you can, then it's a 'must do'.
A couple of expenses to note before you leave your ship or hotel:
Price of the cab ride to and from the meeting place.
Price of admission to the Acropolis
Price of lunch-the tour met at a hotel and they had a varied menu/excellent food
