Sunset At The Temple of Poseidon

During our time in Athens, we took a sunset tour to Cape Sounion to see the Temple of Poseidon. Our tour guide picked us up from our Athens hotel, sometime in the afternoon. We stopped at Sounion Beach and had dinner at Akrogiali. The food was tasty and we had a great view of both the sea and the temple. Shortly before sunset, we left the restaurant and headed up to the temple. The clouds in the sky made for a dramatic sunset and a gorgeous backdrop for the temple. The temple itself is built on a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea. It still amazes me how structures that were built in the B.C. period are still standing and that we are fortunate enough to see it. I am really glad we were able to squeeze this mini tour into our schedule. It was worth the drive time and one of my favorite stops during our Greece trip.
