The tour continues with a visit to the Acropolis, Parthenon, Acropolis Museum, and the Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion. With more than 4,000 ancient objects exhibited, you will discover the greatest treasures of Athens. The Acropolis is a symbol of Greece’s glory and the birthplace of Western civilization. The Parthenon is the most significant temple on the Acropolis, dedicated to the goddess Athena, and is a masterpiece of ancient Greek architecture.
Next, we will drive you to Cape Sounion, located on a hilltop overlooking the sea. The Temple of Poseidon was built in 44 B.C. and many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns has a graffito left by Lord Byron in the early 1800s. As we drive by the idyllic beaches of the Saronic Gulf, like Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza, you will have the opportunity to experience the beauty of Athens beyond the city limits.
