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.
