A memory from the battle of Marathon.

A drive to the site of the historical battle of 490 B. C. where the athenians fought for their freedom against a gigantic persian army. This is the actual starting point of the modern marathon run. The location is very inspiring, we will walk around the burial tumulus, visit the local museum and drive to the coast passing by the same marshy lakes that witnessed this great battle. Very touching!
P. S. The area of Marathon has beautiful, peaceful beaches and local tavernas.


Marathon is 45 min. direction northeast from Athens city. Located in the plain of Mesogaia, a very fertile plain full of cultivations.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nota was an excellent guide! I went on a tour of Marathon with her, and she was both knowledgeable and able to present the past in a very lively and interesting way. I highly recommend her as a guide in and around Athens.
