The cape of Sounion is located at the southern utmost of Attica. It is an idyllic region that also presents archaeological interest. Temple of Poseidon (Neptune), one of the most important holy monuments, is located there. Sounio is famous for its bewitching sunset, one of the most beautiful throughout the world.

From Athens
To access Sounio follow the coastal Sounio avenue (through Bari, Saronida, Fokaia), or the avenue which crosses Messogia (through Koropi, Markopoulo, Keratea).
The way from the coastal avenue is wonderful, as you drive through some of the most beatiful beaches of Attica.
