Athens and Cape Sounion 

Private eight Hours tour from Piraeus to Athens and Cape Sounio

 Your tour starts from the Port of Piraeus ( the port of Athens) where your ship docks. Suggesting time  to start your private tour in Athens is 9 am to avoid the morning traffic.

 While driving from Piraeus to Athens, you will have a taste of the modern city and the way of life. Your first stop is the Acropolis. The entrance to the Acropolis was a monumental gateway called the Propylaea. To the south of the entrance is the tiny Temple of Athena Nike. A bronze statue of Athena, sculpted by Phidias, originally stood at its centre. At the centre of the Acropolis is the Parthenon or Temple of Athena Parthenos (Athena the Virgin). East of the entrance and north of the Parthenon is the temple known as the Erechtheum. South of the platform that forms the top of the Acropolis there are also the remains of an outdoor theatre called Theatre of Dionysus. A few hundred meters away, there is the now partially reconstructed Theatre of Herodes Atticus.

Most of the valuable ancient artifacts were situated in the Acropolis Museum, which resides on the south-east corner of the same rock. An operation to move them for the 400 meters distance to the New Acropolis Museum started on Sunday, 14 October 2007, and continued for six weeks.

After finishing your visit to these unique sites, your driving tour to the rest of Athens begins, on which you will see the Syntagma, Euzonous that are the traditional dressed Presidential best soldiers that are not allowed to speak or move until their swift is over. You will also get to see the Greek Parliament and the Olympic Stadium and then we continue the tour by driving to Cape Sounio.

Cape Sounion is noted as the site of ruins of the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea in classical mythology. The remains are perched on the headland, surrounded on three sides by the sea

The site is accessible by road from Athens. This is the scenic highway which closely follows the west coast of Attica (the "Attic riviera"), passing through numerous upscale residential districts and resorts, such as Glyfada, Vouliagmeni (anc. Zoster), Varkiza. The headland is roughly shaped like an axe-head. A narrow neck of land leads to the higher, gently-sloping site of the temple. On most sides of the axe-head are steep cliffs, up to 60 m (197 ft) high.

There were two ancient temples on this site, one dedicated to Athena (of which only the foundations remain) and the other the famous one to Poseidon.

Within walking distance, there is a tavern and a hotel. Further development has been restricted by the designation of the site, and a large surrounding region, as one of 10 National parks in Greece.

From this jutting headland, there is a panoramic view of the surrounding Aegean islands. Nearby are the islets of Makronisi (ancient Helena, to the east) and Patroklou or Patroclus (west, see Fig.2 map). Further away, to the south, the larger islands of Kea, Kithnos, Serifos and, on a clear day, as far as Milos, 60 miles (97 km) distant. To the east, looming behind Kea can be seen the 994 m (3261 ft) peak of Andros island. To the west, the mountainous shore of the Argolis peninsula, across the Saronic gulf.

After we finish this wonderful and very interesting private tour we will return back to your ship in Piraeus or to your hotel.

Please note: This is not wheelchair accessible. Acropolis has many steps to walk up, and it will not be very comfortable if you have walking problem.
