Enjoy a scenic route along the winding coastline of the Athens Riviera before you reach the top of the magnificent rock at Cape Sounion, contemplating the astounding views to the Aegean Sea. There you are standing with awe before the dominating doric Temple dedicated to Poseidon, while you listen to your expert Historian reciting the different stories and legends that have been escorting this important site since ancient times. According to one legend, it was from here that Aegeas, Theseus’ father, jumped off the cliff, believing his son was returning dead from the expedition against the Minotaur in Crete, thus urging the Hellenes to name the Aegean Sea after his name.
