Temple of Poseidon Tour Short Description:
This half day day trip from Athens is a must not only for Percy Jackson fans, but also for lovers of Greek Mythology and anyone who appreciates a good sunset! Starting in the afternoon, you’ll be driven along the Athens Riviera, take a swim in the sea or a thermal lake, and then arrive at the the Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion. Here, our guide will show you around the site, explaining the myths and legends connected with it, and also making sure you get a prime position for the magnificent sunset later on!
What to expect:
The private Temple of Poseidon Tour begins when our guide meets you either at your Athens hotel or a central point. From here, you’ll be driven out of Athens in a luxury vehicle as your guide explains the events ahead.
The theme of the tour may be Greek mythology, but really, it’s about fun! There’ll be games and quizzes throughout the tour, as our guide explains not only about Greek Mythology but also the areas you will be passing through. The fun increases of course when you have the chance to go for a swim!
After arriving at the Temple of Poseidon, you’ll be shown around by our knowledgeable guide who will not only connect the site with Greek Mythology, but also some of the stories from the Percy Jackson books. You’ll soon discover that not everything in the Percy Jackson books is entirely accurate, and that sometimes, the real Greek myths are stranger than the books!
Finally, you’ll be shown where to watch the sunset at its best. It’s an amazing feeling watching the sun sink into the sea where ancient Greeks would have worshipped thousands of years ago, and you might still feel some of the magic in the air!
