Description

Meet your private driver-guide at Piraeus Port in Athens, and then sit back and relax in your comfortable, air-conditioned car on the journey to Marathon. As you start your shore excursion, talk with your guide about the region and take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The beauty of having a private guide is that any commentary is tailored to your interests.

After around an hour, make your first stop on the Athens-Marathon road, roughly 2.5 miles (4 km) before the town of Marathon. Here, visit Marathon Tomb, a 33-foot (10-meter) high mound where 192 soldiers who died in the Battle of Marathon were buried. Listen as your guide shares the tale of this tragic battle that took place in 490 BC during the first Persian invasion of Greece.

Then, discover the origins of the namesake race at the site where it originated. Hear the fascinating legend of the soldier who ran 26 miles to Athens, without stopping, to announce the Persian defeat, only to collapse and die after sharing the news.

Continue on to Lake Marathon, a water supply reservoir that is surrounded by lush greenery. Wander toward the pristine Marathon Dam, the only marble dam in the world, and take in the stunning natural vistas, perhaps stopping in the cafe to recharge with a cooling drink or light snack (own expense).

When the time comes, hop back inside your private transport and return to Piraeus Port where you tour concludes.
