If you’ve ever dreamt of a Grecian getaway after studying Sophocles and Socrates, indulge in that desire at the Cape Sounio Grecotel, a resort set amid gardens and pine forests on the southern tip of the historic region of Attica, 30 miles south of the Athens airport. Rejuvenate poolside at the Elixir Spa, where you’ll be pampered like a Greek god or goddess, or soak up the sun at your choice of 2 private beaches. Gaze out over the Saronic Gulf to the ancient Temple of Poseidon, or head out on a yachting excursion to see why this coast is nicknamed the “Athens Riviera.”
