HIGHLIGHTS: *A/C comfort on a one hour drive from Athens  *a licensed guide (optional) *the ancient Temple of Poseidon built in 444 BC on top of another even more ancient temple *An easy path to walk to the Temple *a great cliff edge cafe for coffee and snacks *magnificent panorama view of several Greek islands. *Free time to ponder the greatness of ancient Greece. *Escorted back to point of origin.

FYI: The walk up to the temple is a short and easy five minute walk on the same pathway and entrance that was used over 2,500 years ago.
