“Island Magic” experience at the Athenian Riviera & Cape Sounion

Contemporary glamour meets ancient legends in this bespoke, half-day private tour to the Athenian Riviera and Cape Sounion. Leave the gray urban landscape behind to discover Athens’ blue and gold playground, where it is always summer: A 70 km coastline leading to Attica’s southernmost tip, with palm tree esplanades, idyllic beaches, fancy establishments, and seaside resorts.

On the way to Cape Sounion, enjoy a quick Spa-like experience at Lake Vouliagmeni. Once you reach the top of the majestic promontory, you won’t help but gape at the 2500-year-old Temple of Poseidon. The same way that ancient Athenians once did. When the sight of its 16 Doric columns welcomed them back home from their adventures in the Aegean. Enjoy the once seen, never forgotten, spectacle of the fiery sunset. Maybe have a swim and round off your trip with seafood delicacies in a hidden gem of a taverna. In between stops, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to shop, eat, indulge and get a taste of the local culture.
