Sunset Sounion & Athens Riviera Tour-Mini van
No need to get on a ferry to escape the hustle and bustle of the Greek capital! Sit back, relax and enjoy the endless views of the Saronic sea, sun, and beauty beginning just 10 miles from the center of the city. Your first stop will be the picturesque Lake Vouliagmeni, which lies “sunk” (Vouliagméni means sunk) in the remains of a huge limestone cave fed by lukewarm springs welling from underground. The lake’s mineral and brackish waters feel absolutely silky while swimming whereas it is reportedly healing for rheumatism and arthritis! This coastal tour continues through marvellous resorts such as Lagonissi and Saronida and ends at Cape Sounio. There you will see the impressive Temple of Poseidon – the last piece of the ancient Athenians’ homeland every time they sailed into the Aegean. This tour is perfect day or night but our favorite time is during the sunset! Cameras ready people! Watch the sunset fill the sky with every shade of mauve and pink making the sea glow like a beautiful sapphire! The view from here is exquisite especially at night under a full moon. Sunset is the most popular time to visit Sounion.
