Indagare Tours: Cape Sounion

temple of poseidon

The best day-trip from Athens is a visit to Cape Sounoin, about an hour-and-a-half from the city. Along the way, stop at a idyllic lake to swim and grab a bite at a local fishing taverna. Time your arrival at the Temple of Poseidon (the defining landmark of Cape Sounion) so that you arrive just before sunset. It is a magical spot to watch the sun come down.

If you don't want to travel that far, another favorite twilight haunt is the café at the peak of Lycabettus, which you can arrive to either by hiking up a path that begins at Aristippou Street in Kolonaki or with the funicular that leaves from Ploutarchou and Aristippou Streets. Indagare members can contact the Bookings Team for assistance planning specialized experiences.
