Sunset gaze at Temple of Poseidon
At the end of the Sounio Peninsula at the southernmost point of Attica, lies the Temple of Poseidon within a fort that protects the coast of Attica. Erected in the middle of the 5th century BC to honor Poseidon, god of the sea. Made entirely of white marble, it was erected in the middle of the 5th century BC and built to honor Poseidon, god of the sea.
British poet Lord Byron was one of many who fell under its spell, composing poetry in its honor and has his name carved on one of its iconic marble pillars
You will be mesmerized by the blankets of reds and oranges that engulf the temple as the sun descends since this is one of the nicest sunsets one can experience in his lifetime.
Natural Spa in the warm waters of Vouliagmeni Lake
Lake Vouliagmeni is a part saltwater, part spring water lake where people can swim year-round due to its desirable, steady temperature of 22-25 degrees C or 70-77 degrees F.
The warm water is known for its therapeutic mineral qualities and healing properties and has been used for years to bring relief to arthritis sufferers.
Just a short walk northward away from the coast, the enchanting lake is set dramatically against a huge jutting cliff just off the coast and flanked by a high rock face on one side and trees on the other.
The source of the clear, warm water is still unknown.

The romantic experience: Open-air movie experience at Cine Paris in Plaka
This is a unique experience that one can find in Athens. Cine Paris is one of the oldest open-air cinemas in Athens, and it’s still one of the most popular cinemas for the locals thanks to its fantastic location in Plaka, facing the Parthenon. It is open from May to September, screening mostly contemporary movies.
So many reasons to visit it: The beautiful view of the Parthenon, the traditional building with the old movie posters, the incredible feeling of watching a film while enjoying a beer and a snack under the Greek sky, while marveling at the lighted Parthenon. The walk before (or after) around the streets of Plaka.
This is definitely an unforgettable experience.
Stargazing at the National Observatory of Athens
Let us take you to the stars!

During the summer months, it conducts private evening tours in English offering the public the opportunity to peer through the 8-meters dome of the Doridis telescope and to enjoy the Athenian sky from the Hill of the Nymphs, opposite the Acropolis.
The Doridis refracting telescope was built by the French company P.F. Gautier in 1902. It is housed in a building designed by Ernst Ziller, a short distance from the Sinas building.
It was used for the first time at the eclipse of the sun on 30th August 1905.
