Long bus ride out there but worth hearing about the coast of Greece, seeing the seaside getaways / ocean spots along the way. Got to experience Athens traffic along the way that was long coming back to the port. Compared with Rome, Greek ancient structures like the Temple of Poseidon were ruins. Read Less

A lovely ride along the scenic coast. Temple of Poseidon was a highlight for me. Nice little place by the sea for tea and local pastries.

Temple of Poseidon and Its Scenic Coast (Athens). Level 2, 4.5 hours. We’ve done the requisite Athens sites on a previous visit, so opted instead for the scenic drive to Poseidon’s temple. I found it powerful, but my husband said it was interesting and mostly, it wasn’t Athens. Easy enough walk with some steps, uneven terrain around the temple. Although the temple is not as ornate or huge as the Parthenon, I liked that you could get a bit closer without huge crowds. We had an hour’s stop at a luxury resort for coffee and pastries, which were all lovely, as one would expect. The water is breathtaking. (Bottled water provided). Some shopping at port. Read Less

The drive out to the Temple of Poseidon once you are out of Athens is very picturesque in places. Film fans: The Temple of Poseidon is where some of Jason & the Argonauts was filmed, the skeleton attack.

This was NCL's Athens and its Scenic Coast. It started off by going to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, which was impressive, and then went back to Athens for a meal and a visit to the Acropolis. The meal was a mass-produced thing and not great, but was a good chance to meet other cruisers. The visit to the Acropolis was good, but rushed as our tour guide spoke for far too long on trivia (which should have been done on the coach). We then stopped off briefly at a shop on the way back to the ship - they gave away free postcards which saved me buying some. Read Less

We thought this the best of the ancient ruins to see. The sight was impeccably clean and well maintained and the views are fantastic. Do NOT miss this one and be sure to appreciate the hour long drive from Athens along the coast. The restaurant at this site is wonderful and they have the best rest rooms we saw in Greece!. Enjoy a latte or two as you contemplate the views. Read Less

Loved seeing Temple of Poseidon and the Acropolis. Our tour guide was great and very informative. Bring comfortable walking shoes and maybe a hat. Terrain is very rocky, hilly and windy. It was beautiful at both locations!

We took an all day excursion that included the Acropolis, a Greek buffet lunch, and a trip to Cape Sounion to see the Temple of Poseidon. Not a lot of people know about Cape Sounion, but the drive there (about an hour) was beautiful along the coast. The Temple of Poseidon suddenly rises in the distance, and it's quite a sight to see.
