Athens Accessible Shore Excursion to Temple of Poseidon

If you’re looking for an easy, scenic shore excursion from Piraeus cruise port, this wheelchair accessible tour is for you. This half-day accessible Athens shore excursion drives along the scenic Aegean coast to the Temple of Poseidon ruins located on the southernmost tip of the Attica Peninsula. What a view!

The Athens Accessible Shore Excursion to Temple of Poseidon uses a van with a wheelchair lift to travel the 69 km each way along the scenic coast. When you arrive at the Cape of Sounion, you’ll be at the southernmost tip of the Attica peninsula which is also home to the legendary spot where Aegeus, King of Athens, leapt to his death giving his name to the Aegean Sea.

The original temple here was destroyed by the Persian King Xerxes’ invasion of Greece. On the Athens Accessible Shore Excursion to Temple of Poseidon you will see the remains of the current temple built around 440 BC. It occupies an incredible viewpoint over the Aegean Sea making for a great photo opportunity!

Travelers who have previously visited Athens will enjoy this tour to the Temple of Poseidon and our Greek Cuisine Accessible Athens Guided Tour.
