Cape Sounio, situated at the southernmost of Attica (65 km from Athens) and overseeing the Aegean Sea, is the site of the ancient temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in mythology. On the way to Sounio we cross the Athens Riviera, an area stretching along the coastal road of southern Athens, with idyllic rocky bights and sandy beaches. We visit Lake Vouliagmeni a natural thermal spa and then we arrive at Cape Sounio where you will visit the site of the temple and enjoy a magnificent sunset over the Aegean Sea
