Day Trip from Athens to Sunion

One of the most beautiful coast lines in Greece is just 45 minutes from the centre of Athens. From the suburb of Vouliagmeni, famous for its spring-fed mineral lake, to Varkiza, where the road opens up to a spectacular drive along the coast all the way to the temple of Poseidon in Sunion. This drive, whether on a cold rainy day in winter, or the sunniest, hottest day in summer, never fails to present views of everychanging beauty.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy Day Trip from Centre of Athens
  • Cons:No Congested Traffic Jams?
  • In a nutshell:That which is essential is right in front of our everyday eye !

    Thanks Janet for bringing back sweet memories about this beautiful area! I believe you became a young girl after swimming in the Vouliagmeni Lake, ha-ha!

    The pomegranates look wonderful. Enjoyed all the "water" escapes. So sorry about Lucy. Such a sweet, loyal pet. The Plaza looks and sounds just wonderful. Incredible writing style certainly entices the readers, Janet.

    The hot springs by the ocean looks very inviting. We have some hot springs in the mountains near Calgary but swimming in a lake next to the ocean would be a treat.

    This gym is very overpriced, currently 110 euros a month! Also broken dumbbells never replaced. Broken machines take weeks to be repaired. Air quailty is poor The floor staff does not tidy up. They do not provide towles in case you forgot yours.
