Starting from Piraeus, Athenian Riviera covers Flisvos and Faliro. It reaches Alimos and Elliniko, then Glyfada and Voula. Lake Vouliagmeni is next. Its name means “sunken” in Greek and legend has it that a lost city fell into this deep lake, flanked by an immense limestone cave. Anavissos is a wonderful beach and there are many fish taverns in the area.
At the tip of the Athenian peninsula you will find Cape Sounio, home to the iconic Temple of Poseidon. Perched magically on the edge of the land, the Temple was once welcoming sight for sea travelers looking to return home to Athens. Today the temple is a famous attraction for travelers from all over the world. And it is the place with the most mesmerizing sunset in Athens!
