Explore the Beauty & History of Sounio
What makes you plan a trip to Greece? Ancient sites, hiking at scenic areas or swimming in the beauty of the Aegean sea? Have it all in one day riding pillion on my bike (Suzuki V-Strom 650), or the seat of my car (KIA Sportage 2.0).
I drive, you enjoy :)
The area around Sounio at the South East end of Attiki region attracted people since the prehistoric ages. It is among the most beautiful ones with a wealth ranging from agricultural products up to silver mines. Enjoy a tour including a visit to the oldest theater in the world (6th B.C.), the oldest silver mine around and one of the oldest in the world (3000 B.C.), hiking to the top of the nearby hill offering a stunning overview, a ride through the pine tree forest of the National Park of Sounio. Last but not least a visit to Cape Sounio itself with the great temple of Poseidon (plus some hidden gems if you have enough time).
Watch part of the ride:
And...if there's still time and mood for more, the experience ends enjoying the sea with a kayak ride to a couple of swimming bays.

This is also a great way to spend your time during a layover between flights and can be modified according to how much time you have available.
