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 Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion to marvel its architectural excellence and the stunning view it offers, along with an insight into Greek history and mythology. Make sure you get a prime position for the magnificent sunset later on and you’ll be left awestruck!
What to expect:
The private Temple of Poseidon Tour begins when our driver picks you up from your Athens hotel or a central point of the city. From here, you’ll be driven out of Athens in a luxury vehicle, enjoying a comfortable and stress-free experience.
The theme of the tour may be ‘Greek mythology’, but really, it is all about fun, as you have the chance to go for a swim during summertime or to explore the modern Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center during winter!
After arriving at the Temple of Poseidon, you will have the opportunity to wander around the site and make the connection between the monument before you and 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, it’ll be time to watch the sunset at the best location you possibly can. It’s an amazing feeling watching the sun sink into the sea where ancient Greeks would have worshiped thousands of years ago, and you might still feel some of the magic in the air!
