Day trips from Athens -the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion

Less than an hour drive southeast of Athens is Cape Sounion, a windswept promontory jutting out into the Aegean Sea. A magnificent 5th-century BCE Temple of Poseidon commands the end of the cape. It’s a dramatic and evocative place, especially at sunset, well worth the pretty drive from Athens along the Saronic Gulf.
