What You Can Expect

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

Morning Athens Sightseeing Tour:
Begin your morning Athens sightseeing tour with a pickup from your Athens hotel, or alternatively, at a meeting point in central Athens.

Relax into your air-conditioned coach and drive to the Acropolis, the ancient citadel of Athens perched high above the city on a rocky outcrop. Head through the gates with your guide, and stroll around the top Acropolis attractions, including the Temple of Athena Nike, Propylea, Erechtheion, and the spectacular Parthenon.


Having explored these classical masterpieces, continue to the Panathenaic Stadium, the arena that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Snap photos of the all-marble stadium and then drive to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Greek Parliament House in Syntagma Square.

Admire the handsome government buildings around the square, and then head along Panepistimiou Street, one of Athens’ main avenues. See St Dionysius Cathedral with its arcaded portico, and pass the elegant buildings of the University of Athens, National Library and Academy of Athens.

Lastly, pay a visit to the Acropolis Museum, the ultra-modern museum that houses many of the classical statues, friezes and artifacts recovered from the Acropolis. After viewing the highlights here, conclude your sightseeing tour, and enjoy around an hour of free time to relax or have lunch (own expense) at a local taverna before your afternoon tour.


Afternoon Cape Sounion Trip:
At around 2:45pm, reconvene with your coach and leave Athens behind as you journey south to Cape Sounion. As you travel, admire the beautiful beaches of the Saronic Gulf and hear tales of the Cape and its showpiece: the glimmering white Temple of Poseidon.

On arrival, leave your coach and walk up to the temple, built high on cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea. Take in the awesome sea views and if it’s clear weather, gaze out over the island of Kea in the distance.

Admire the Doric columns of the 5th century BC temple and hear about the Greek myths that surround the building. Then, see the inscription made on one of the columns by the English poet Lord Byron in the early 1800s.



Afterward, travel back to Athens where your tour ends at your hotel or the original start point.

We loved starting Greece, trip of a lifetime, with the Acropolis and then down to Cape Sounion. A most delightful, informative day. The tour guides were terrific.

The morning was full of information and sights with the Acropolis and its museum as the highlight. The afternoon took us to a beautiful spot in the south of Greece by the sea. The tour was less informative, more of a trip outside the city to see this beautiful region and the temple of Poseidon.

Great tour, very knowledgeable tour guide. Helps to be on a tour to be able to skip the lines of people trying to see the acropolis. The Cape Sounion tour was also good. A downside is that I thought we would be able to see the sunset. This only happens a few times a year.
