Our ride starts from Petralona and we will be driving by the Athenian riviera, the most sophisticated and stylish suburbs of Athens. Our first stop will be at one of the many beautiful beaches along the riviera, for a swim for about an hour. After that we will continue until we get to the southernmost tip of Attica where the most impressive temple, the temple of Poseidon dominates the Cape. Standing there for 2500 years witnesses the depth of history and offers the most amazing views to the Aegean sea. Writers, poets like lord Byron, photographers, even fashion designers have always been inspired by the breathtaking views of the temple. A journey back to the past when sailors and ancient pilgrims would stop there to sacrifice to Poseidon, the god of the seas and the waves. We will spend an hour enjoying the views from the temple. Skipping all touristy restaurants of the area, we will return to a local restaurant in Ilioupoli suburb, for an amazing greek dinner.

fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We had an awesome day heading out to the Athenian Riviera! It was a windy day so we couldn’t stop at the original beach planned out Nikos took us to a lovely protected beach and we had fun swimming and sunning! We headed over to Poseidon’s Temple and it was amazing! So beautiful and a great place to wander around and explore. They have a little cafe if you are hungry or thirsty. The local restaurant we went to on the way back from Athens was excellent and something we wouldn’t have found on our own. I don’t know what L.B.’s issue was but we had a fantastic day!
Nice dinner but....
