Take in the impressive views of the Saronic Gulf and see the ruins of the temple of Poseidon, god of the sea in classical mythology. Admire the still-standing Doric columns that have inspired poets—including Lord Byron—and hear the legend of Aegeus on your private tour.

In the comfort of a private vehicle, sit back and take a break on the way to Cape Sounion on the southern tip of the Attica peninsula. A leisurely drive on the coastal road along the Saronic Gulf offers unique vantage points of some of most charming suburbs, including Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, and Glyfada, the largest southern suburb, which is known for its fashionable atmosphere of upmarket boutiques and cafés.

At Cape Sounion visit the ruins of the temple of Poseidon, built in the 5th century BC on a rocky hilltop, which has a panoramic view of the Cyclades islands. Marvel at the temple's Doric columns that inspired poets like Lord Byron. With your guide, hear the legend that the Aegean Sea is named after—the king of Athens, Aegeus—who leapt to his death from a cliff 197 feet (60 m) high after he thought his son was dead.
