Sounio, Marathon & Elefsina

Today I take you out of Athens. Three different places worth visiting not too far away from the Greek Capital are our todays travel destinations. First, we go further south to Sounio – where the temple of Poseidon is located.

Then we go further east to lake Marathon with a great café that invites us to stay and enjoy a Freddo Cappucino.

North-west from Athens we find Elefsina, where the Eleusinian Mysteries took place. There we can discover an interesting mix between ancient history and much younger industrial factories.
