Sunset gaze at Temple of Poseidon
At the end of Cape Sounio, lies the Temple of Poseidon within a fort that protects the coast of Attica. Made entirely of white marble, it was erected in the middle of the 5th century BC in order to honor the god of the sea, Poseidon. British poet Lord Byron was one of many who fell under its spell, composing poetry in its honor. His name is also carved on one of its marble pillars.

Adventures in Athens
Athens is one of the world’s most impressive capital cities with a unique and vibrant blend of history and culture.
The Acropolis is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens. Built in 5 B.C. by Pericles, it contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historical significance, with the most famous being the Parthenon. Also known as the sacred Rock, this UNESCO world heritage site is definitely synonymous with Athens.
The Benaki Museum has several sites, but the main one is the former Benaki family mansion in central Athens. The museum houses Greek works of art from prehistoric to modern times; an extensive collection of Asian art, hosts periodic exhibitions, and maintains a state-of-the-art restoration and conservation workshop. Although the museum initially housed a collection that included Islamic art, Chinese porcelain and exhibits on toys, its 2000 re-opening led to the creation of satellite museums that focused on specific collections, allowing the main museum to focus on Greek culture over the span of the country’s history.
The National Garden of Athens
The National Garden or Royal Garden is a public park of 15.5 hectares (38 acres) in the center of Athens. It is located between the districts of Kolonaki and Pangrati, directly behind the Greek Parliament building, and continues to the South to the area where the Zappeion is located, across from the Panathenaic Stadium. The Garden also encloses some ancient ruins, tambourines and Corinthian columns, mosaic, and other features. Apart from the historic monuments, during your walk here you will find several instagramable moments.
