Temple of Poseidon

We will cruise the scenic Athenian Riviera towards our first stop of the day. The impressive Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio. The southernmost point of Attica. A magnificent seaside route full of amazing scenery and twisty roads. As with many other monuments, historical facts about the Temple of Poseidon are intertwined with bits of legend. It is believed that King Aegeus was waiting for his sons Theseus to return from his expedition in Crete. He was there to kill the mighty Minotaur, a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man. He saw the black sails on the ship and mistakenly thought Theseus had been killed by the beast. In fact, young Theseus was victorious but had forgotten to replace the black sails with white ones. And this ultimately led to his father’s death.

Marathon Tomb

After that, we will continue our motorcycle tour around Athenian Temples, by visiting the Marathon Tomb. At the plain of Marathon, near the location of the historical battle between the Athenians and the Persians, is the Tomb. The place where the cremated remains of the 192 soldiers who lost their lives during the Battle of Marathon. Apart from the ashes they also found traces from the funerary dinner that their fellow soldiers organized in their honor. The Tomb of Marathon is the starting point for the annual Classical Marathon race.

Acropolis of Athens

After a short lunch, we will get on our motorcycles for the final part of our moto tour around Athenian Temples. Subsequently, we will visit the historical Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games in 1896 took place and finally stop at the world-famous Acropolis.

In conclusion, there will be time for a provisional visit before heading back to our headquarters.
