Add To Plan

The Greeks chose their temple sites by considering both the natural beauty of the location and its appropriateness to the god in question. Nowhere is this more evident than at the Temple of Poseidon, located on a magnificent seaside cliff on windswept Cape Sounion, the southernmost point on the Attica peninsula. It's a perfect spot for a temple dedicated to the powerful god of the sea. As you drive toward the cape, you will see the temple standing majestically on a jagged spur. The panoramic view from this lofty spot is superb with the deep blue Aegean Sea studded with islands before you. Over the centuries, the beauty of the surviving Doric columns has inspired countless writers and poets, including Lord Byron.

This tour includes approximately 1 hour of walking and/or standing and there is approximately 30 steps to negotiate at the Temple of Poseidon; therefore, this tour is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The actual tour duration may vary due to traffic conditions.
