Your first stop is the Marathon Tomb.which a well known as the Tomb of the Athenians , is situated on the Athens-Marathon road, roughly 2.5 miles (4 km) before the town of Marathon, and is the final resting place of 192 soldiers who died in the Battle of Marathon. Marathon is an alternative tour for those wanted to visit something different in the Attica area. Everyone has heard the story of the Persian defeat at Marathon at the hands of the Athenians. Imagine marching several thousand miles only to be wiped out 27 miles from the city you came to conquer by an army a fraction of your size. Hear from your guide about this bloody battle that took place in 490 BC during the first Persian invasion of Greece, and learn how those who fell were cremated and buried in this tomb as a reminder of their sacrifice and bravery. Then, you will continue with your guide on the site where the marathon race originated. Listen as your guide shares 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, return to your private car and enjoy a short drive to Lake Marathon, which is surrounded by landscape with natural beauty. Relax and enjoy your drink and a snack at the cafe (own expense) and stroll leisurely toward Marathon Dam. After your exploration, return to Athens in your private vehicle.
