Cape Sounion is a beach that is south of Athens, known for its beautiful hotels and luxury restaurants. I've attended so many weddings in the area, as it is one of the most popular destinations for families that live in the Athens or mainland area. One of the best parts of the area is that you can catch a great view of the Temple of Poseidon, here is what it looks like:

So if you want to make it a perfect day and you are staying around Athens, stop at Aperanto Galazio in Varkiza on your way to the temple. Reserve your fish for the return trip dinner. Enjoy the sunset and then return to the restaurant for a satisfying dinner on the beach.

Cape Sounion is one of my favorite places to visit in the Sounion area. I always make it a point to go! The Temple of Poseidon is fantastic.

This is a great idea. I have never done that, but I am going to try it next time. Sounds like a lovely day!

Cape Sounion is also a very popular location for weddings and baptisms! I highly recommend it for anyone who is planning their event.
 

Take a boat instead of driving to Porto Cheli!

I've seen so many people rent cars and drive all the way down to Porto Cheli from the Athens airport. While this is a great option if you prefer to drive, many people overlook taking a boat because it takes just a little bit longer. The reality is that taking a boat is much cheaper, and you also can be a lot more comfortable since you're able to walk around the deck, get snacks and coffee, and use the bathroom. Personally, I love taking the boat, because I also like to visit Hydra and Spetses when I am there and it's much easier to take boats to both of those islands as well.

My favourite Athens suburb

I just love Exarcheia and these videos give a great insight into its unique and colourful nature.

The best neighborhood to stay in Athens is Thiseio

The Thiseio neighbourhood is perfect for your stay in Athens because you are able to have access to some of the best sites. It is walking distance to the Acropolis, and Monastiraki as well as many different art galleries, shops, restaurants and cafés. When I stay in this neighborhood, I really don't find myself needing to stray and I can find everything I need in walking distance.
