How Do I Get to the Temple of Poseidon from Port of Piraeus by Bus?

The Temple of Poseidon at Sounion generally takes a half-day to enjoy from the Athens Port. Buses typically run every hour on the half-hour from the coast and the entire trip takes about two hours, one way. Buses can be caught at Pedion Aeros, near the National Archaeological Museum or about a block from Syntagma Square. Most tourist guides recommend seeing the Temple of Poseidon early in the day, so check the current bus schedule to find out when transportation begins running. If you head to Sounion later in the day, keep in mind the temple closes at sunset and plan accordingly.
