Half Day Marathon Tour
Our private tour starts with driving towards the northern side of Attica prefecture to Marathon.
First stop is at Lake of Marathon, a technical lake which was created from the construction of the homonymous dam. The Marathon lake, until 60’s, was the main water supply for Athens. The Marathon Dam, which is a gravity dam, is an impressive and unique construction due to the reason that its external cladding was made with the famous white “Pentelikon marble” (the same marble was used for Acropolis of Athens).
Our next stop is at the plain of Marathon where the famous battle between Greeks and Persians took place in 490 B.C. You will see the start point of the famous Marathon Race (race in honored of the Greek messenger Pheidipides who ran the distance from Marathon to Athens without any stop in order to announce the victory to Athenians). You will visit the “Tymvos” (Tomb - a burial mound that houses the ashes of the 192 Athenians who fell during the Battle of Marathon) and the Archaeological Museum.
Last stop of our tour is at the Sanctuary of Goddness Artemis in Vraurona. Amongst others you will see the Artemis Temple, the “Π” Shared Stoa, and the Stone Bridge. You will also visit the Archaeological Museum with findings from Goddness Artemis Sanctuary.
Our private tour concludes with the return in our starting place.
