Marathon is an alternative tour for those wanted to visit something different in the Attica area. Everyone knows the Marathon Races all over the world and many of you have dreamed to participate in one of them, but do you know the history behind? You can now discover the place, where everything began…

Following the route of the Authentic Marathon race, first stop is the Marathon Tomb, the final resting place of 192 soldiers who died in the Battle of Marathon. Hear from your guide about this bloody battle that took place in 490 BC during the first Persian invasion of Greece.

Next visit is the archaeological museum of Marathon. There, if we are lucky, we will have the unique experience to visit the secret attraction that few people had the chance to visit in the past, the Tomb where 8 soldiers from Platees were buried.

After a short stop at the site where the marathon race originated, listen from your guide the fascinating legend of the soldier who ran 26 miles from Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated before he collapsed and died. Next, enjoy a short drive to Lake Marathon, a reservoir surrounded by verdant natural beauty. Here, we will do a short stop for a snack at the cafe (own expense) and stroll leisurely toward Marathon Dam. Entirely paneled in pristine white marble, it is the world’s only marble dam.

After your exploration in Marathon, return to Athens to visit the Panathenaiko Stadium, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the first modern Olympics in 1896 . It is also the finishing point for the annual Athens Authentic Marathon.
