On my last full day in Athens, I decided to visit Cape Sounion as a quick afternoon getaway. Cape Sounion is at the south-eastern tip of the Attican peninsula, and is a very popular half day trip from Athens. It is not only famous for the sanctuaries built there, but also for its romanic sunset! 😉
Greek mythology is filled with heroes who slay murderous beasts and accomplish impossible tasks, and Athens has her very own: Theseus.
