Enjoy an afternoon along the Athenian Riviera before admiring the Temple of Poseidon at sunset. Listen to tales from Greek Mythology, stop off for a swim, and more during our Percy Jackson small group tour of Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon!
Half Day Tour to Cape Sounion
Our half-day small group tour to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon is a must-do activity for families who love the Percy Jackson books as much as we do!
In the company of 2 or 3 other like-minded families, we will show you the highlights of the Athens Riviera, stops for plenty of photos, enjoy a swim, and then head to our final destination – The magnificent Temple of Poseidon.
Starting from Athens
The Temple of Poseidon tour is designed so that you are able to experience the sunset at this remarkable archaeological site. Before that though, there are some fun hours ahead!
After pick-up from Athens, we will take you along the Athens Riviera – the coastline that stretches on to Cape Sounion. Soak up the views, and listen to our guide relate some of the history of Athens, as well as tales from Greek Mythology. They’ll even explain how the Percy Jackson books were influenced by Greek Mythology, along with the differences between some of the versions.
As our guides are all local experts, they will be able to show you the best swimming spots on the way. Concerned that the water may not be warm enough at the time of year that you are visiting? Don’t be! If the water’s cold, we can take you to Vouliagmeni thermal lake instead. These relaxing waters are warm at any time of year.
The Temple of Poseidon
Finally, you will arrive at the Temple of Poseidon on the very edge of Cape Sounion. This ancient Greek temple has stood here for thousands of years, and is in an almost magical position with incredible views.
Our guide will take you around the archaeological site, explaining the history of the temple, as well as myths and legends related to the God Poseidon. Your little Percy Jackson fans will love finding out more about Percy’s father, and they should also ask if the temple is part of a ‘Sacred Triangle’. It will make sense later on the tour!
As the sun begins to sink lower in the sky, you have some free time to enjoy the temple and views as the horizon changes colour. Each sunset at the Temple of Poseidon is different, and whether you want to go Instagram crazy or simply sit their and admire nature at its finest, we know you’ll all love it.
