sunset in Sounio

Sounio is my favorite place to watch a sunset in Greece. While its definitely a tourist destination - there's nothing around but the Temple of Poseidon - there's enough space that it doesn't feel as crowded as Oia.

Last year, we were traveling ahead of the main tourist season, and didn't realize that the summer bus schedule hadn't gone into effect yet. We ended up missing the last bus back into the city and since there are no taxi stands, we spent the evening walking along the highway to the nearest town a few miles away. It was a gorgeous night, the perfect weather for a long walk along the Attic coast.
