Meet your guide at your central Athens hotel and set off on a scenic drive along the Attica Riviera. Soak up the scenery of the Saronic Gulf as you wind your way along the coast, past seaside villages, soaring sea cliffs and sandy beaches.
After a 90-minute drive, arrive at Cape Sounion at the southernmost tip of the peninsula and catch a first glimpse of the cliff-top Temple of Poseidon, silhouetted against the sky. Spend time admiring the grand ruins and striking Doric columns of the Greek temple, which dates back to 44 BC and was dedicated to the god of the sea. Learn more about the mighty monument from your guide and spot the graffiti carved onto one of the columns by Lord Byron back in the early 19th century. Don’t forget to bring your camera – the views from the cape stretch far across the Aegean sea and extend all the way to the Peloponnese on a clear day.
Next, hop back into your private vehicle for the 45-minute journey to Vouliagmeni, a romantic seaside town framed by lapping waves and golden beaches. Settle into your seats at Ithaki, one of Attica’s most beautifully situated restaurants, where you’ll enjoy either lunch or dinner depending on the tour option selected. Look out over the dreamy landscapes of Vouliagmeni Bay as you tuck into a 3-course spread of delicious Greek cuisine, made with fresh, seasonal ingredients (sample menu below). With your appetite sated, journey back to Athens, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
