Thermal Lake or Swim in the Sea?
During the drive to the Temple of Poseidon, there will be plenty of time for a swim along the way. Depending on the time of year, you might choose to swim in the warm waters of the Vouliagmeni thermal lake, or the sea itself. Whichever you decide, we’re sure you are going to enjoy this welcome break from your busy sightseeing schedule to have some fun in the water!
The Temple of Poseidon
Finally, after drying off and continuing the drive, you will arrive at the Temple of Poseidon. This temple has been standing for nearly 2500 years, and is of a Doric style. There are many myths and legends connected with the temple, as well as those concerning Poseidon himself. The kids will love finding out how the inspiration for the Rick Riordan books came about during this Percy Jackson Greece tour, as well as the fun way our guide will explain everything.
The Sunset at the Temple of Poseidon
As the sun slowly starts to sink lower in the sky, our guide will show you the best spots from where you can enjoy the sunset and take some videos and photos. There’s something truly magical about the sunset at the Temple of Poseidon, and witnessing it really gives a better understanding as to just why the ancient Greek built the temple in this place.
Once the sun has finally set, it is then time to walk back out of the site to the vehicle, and begin the drive back to Athens. It’s been a fun afternoon, so there will be plenty to talk about on the way back!
