Explore the ancient path of Marathon
• MARATHON LAKE
Once you board your private ride will begin, a 45 km journey from Athens to Marathon – the town where the famous Battle of Marathon took place in 490 BC.
Your driver will take you to the famous Lake Marathon, the perfect place to explore or have a swim. This artificial lake, located in the north-eastern part of Greece, had been providing water supply to Athens from 1931 to 1959.
Next stop, the Marathon Tomb, the monument devoted to 192 Greeks who defeated a huge cavalry of Persians in the Battle of Marathon. As the legend tells, a messenger had to run approximately 40 km from the battlefield to Athens only to announce the defeat of the Persians. After you spend your time at this historical site, your trip will finish at the Marathon Run Museum where you will see the history of Olympic Marathons and an exclusive sporting collection dating back to 1896.
