Marathon is a place where history meets the magic of nature. It serves as a memorial to the ancient struggle between the ancient Athenians and the invading Persians. Near the ancient battleground there is the single tomb of the 192 Athenian soldiers who died during that famous battle and the tomb where the dead Plataians, who helped the Athenians, were buried.

Marathon visitors can be guided to monuments and artifacts through which, a unique period of 5000 years of civilization, is unfolded, from the Neolithic Age to the Roman era. From life in the cave of Oenoe and the early Helladic cemetery in Plasi, to the battle of Marathon in 490 BC and later until the works of Herodes Atticus and the Temple of the Egyptian gods in Brexiza.

The Marathon Run Museum constitutes a pole of attraction for the city visitors, where 3.100 exhibits record the history of Marathon Run from 1896 up to today. It constitutes a unique athletic collection that could not be found elsewhere but at the birthplace of the marathon race. The exhibition is divided in two different partitions. In the first building, a travel in the Olympic Marathon's history is being held, while in the second building, the World Marathon Run movement is recorded, dedicated to the marathons, carried out in every corner of the planet, to Olympic champions, to the appearance of women participating in the marathons, even to the equipment of the marathon runners.

Marathon is not just one of the most famous toponyms around the world, but also a city worth visiting and admiring for its natural beauty and enchanting atmosphere. Marathon features an extraordinary natural landscape with its unique artificial lake of Attica (Marathon Dam), rich stretches of green, fertile plain and 12 km of sandy beach in its historical small harbour of Marathon. Nature endowed Marathon with many natural beauties, such as the gorge of Oinoe and the unique pine forest, one of the few in the Mediterranean, and the wetland of Schinias (National Park). It is worth noting that Lake Marathon and the National Park of Schinias are two of the ten remaining wetlands of Attica, of prominent importance, due to the diversity of species accommodated.

The city that gave birth to one of the most popular events in the history of world sports could only be... breathing for sports and the magic of them. Marathon visitors can unfold their sporting talent ranging from football to kayak, with a range of sports facilities, some of which have nothing to envy the respective facilities of any major European city. The endless blue of the Evian Gulf and the waters of the Gulf of Schinias constitute a very popular diving destination for the lovers of the seabed. One of the most proficient diving schools in the country, Divers Club Marathon Bay, operates in Marathon. Moreover, Schinias Bay is suitable for high speeds and spectacular stunts, due to the strong winds blowing in the region, allying with the surfers for an enjoyable time.
Athens, 42km from Marathon, is a city with glorious history and vivid present. It is a magical city worshipped by gods and people with plenty historical monuments, such as Acropolis, the ancient Theatre of Dionysos, Odeion of Herodes Atticus, Olymbion, Roman Market, Panathinaiko Stadium (also known as Kallimarmaro).

Athens is a city of different aspects. A walk around the famous historic triangle, Plaka, Thission and Psyrri, the old neighborhoods, reveal the coexistence of different eras.
It is worthwhile to take a stroll through the central streets with their art déco, art nouveau and antebellum buildings. Luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns, all have their place in this city. Visitors can also enjoy its nightlife. Athens by night totally changes.
The options for entertainment satisfy all tastes varying from the famous bouzoukia, which are the leaders in the Athenian entertainment, to the numerous theaters all around Athens offering a different type of entertainment.

Athens offers plenty of choices, since visitors can also explore its beautiful suburbs and neighborhoods, which are close to the historical center. The southern suburbs, located on the coast of the Saronic Gulf, such as PalaioFaliro, Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni offer many opportunities to take a walk along the seaside, while you will also find many beautiful organized and free beaches, large shopping centers and nightclubs (especially during the summer).
