Keep the kids enthralled with a day trip to Sounio. The 16 Doric columns bear silent testimony to the tragedy of King Aegeus who threw himself to his death, thus giving his name to the Aegean Sea. You will pass the gate and climb a rocky path, roughly following the ancient approach into the sanctuary of the sea god. The temple was probably designed just after the middle of the 5th century BC and the remaining columns of Pentelic marble have retained much of their original lustrous white appearance. And after that, are you ready toobserve 2,000 animals from 400 different species? Your kids certainly are. This 20-hectare park offers anything from walk-through enclosures where you cansee monkeys, big cats and a delphinarium. Get to know the "World of Reptiles" with Pythons, Boas, Crocodiles, the "Greek Fauna" with Wolves, Brown Bears, Foxes, Wild Cats, the "African Savannah" with Giraffes, Zebra, Antelopes, as well as Lamas, Jaguars, Snow Leopards, the very rare White Lions and other beautiful mammals. After your visit of the zoo board your coach for the return drive to the pier.
