Cape Sounio lies upon the southest point of the 67th Km Athenian Coast line. Drive through a magnificent route where you can enjoy watching all the beaches of Athens and reaching the extraordinary Temple of Poseidon. On the way you can stop at the Lake of Vouliagmeni to swim or in any other private or public beach you may like. You can manipulate your trip plan which means that you can stop if you would like to have lunch before reaching the Temple of Poseidon or stop in any other part of the South for taking pictures. Historically speaking there are stories about the ship of King Menelaus who stopped briefly at Sounio on his way back from Troy; or about the unfortunate King Aegeus who drowned himself on that spot and the Aegean Sea got named after him; or about the people who built a temple using local marble to honour the god of the sea and safeguard the profits from the neighbouring Lavrio mines.
