Cape Sounion Tour Highlights

  • Wine tasting
  • Visit the Poseidon's temple at Cape Sounion

Depart from the terminal at 14:30 to arrive in brief in a special place suitably equipped (Wine and Passion), where we enjoy a wine tasting session with wines of several regions of the country realized. For Giannjs, the expert taster, the passion for the wine is born in his first youth, when he was spending the hours in the wine-making fields of his father in Mesogeia, the land that Dionysos, the God of wine chooses in mythological times, like his favorite place and place of his cult. It is a short space of time, sufficient that Giannis manage to transmit us his passion for the wine. We continue our tour crossing the residential neighborhoods of the coastal line of Athens to arrive at the historical site of cape Sounion, in the most extreme point of the province of Attica, where the legendary Aegean Sea begins.
This is the right point that the Athenians choose to erect this majestic temple dedicated to Poseidon, God of the seas and father of everything what there is in the immense oceans, protector of the Athenians nautical empire.
From this point the Aegean Sea, which begins on its feet, in certain seasons offers unique and unforgettable sunsets. The temple dates from the fifth century B.C., but the place is very well-known by the references offered by Homer in the Odyssey. Its particular architectonic rules obey to measures against the marine erosion. The temple is constructed with marble of the zone. On one of its stones the romantic English poet Lord Byron left his signature, testimony of his visit. Return to Athens after visits completed Arrival Athens at 19:30.
