The tour begins with a visit to the Acropolis with a guided tour of the most important monuments, such as the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Theatre of Dionysus.
The tour continues with a visit to Cape Sounion. Poseidon was the Greek God of the sea and played an important role for the Greeks as reflected in the monument dedicated to him in Cape Sounion. The 5th century B.C. temple of Poseidon is a spectacular monument and from the top of the cliff where the temple stands you can enjoy the most amazing panoramic view; on a clear day you can see the island of Aegina as well as the mountains of the Peloponnese beyond. The temple has been an inspiration to many artists and poets among whom Lord Byron carved his name on one of the columns.
