TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Piraeus Shore Excursion

This half day Piraeus shore trip includes a scenic drive along the coast to the southern tip of Attica and Cape Sounion. You walk among the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea. This temple sits at the cliff's edge, high above the sea, offering dramatic views of the Saronic Gulf. This is a wonderful choice for anyone who does not enjoy big cities or too much walking.

After meeting your guide you begin your drive along the coast line passing popular resorts and beaches and enjoy splendid views of the sea and nearby mountains. Once you have arrived at the isolated Temple of Poseidon standing watch over the sea, your guide will unravel its fascinating history. On this ground the ancient Greeks worshiped their god of the sea, Poseidon. The temple was originally made up of 34 Doric style columns and today there are still 15 which are well preserved. You can walk along the ruins at the cliff's edge high above the sea and take in dramatic views of the surrounding heights and sparkling blue water.

There is a short amount of free time for relaxing in the cafe or exploring the site's gift shop before returning to your ship in Piraeus.

Mobility: Folding wheelchair OK, some areas of the site are not accessible (advance notice required)
