Marathon and Rhamnus Mystery Half-Day Tours

Embark on an unforgettable Marathon Tour with us, commencing from Athens and winding through charming small towns until we reach Marathon. The epic tale of Marathon traces back to the heroic feat of Athenian Greek soldier Pheidippides in 490 BC. After the victorious Battle of Marathon, Pheidippides ran an astonishing 42.195 meters from the battlefield back to Athens to proclaim the “NIKE” (Victory) against the Persians, an act immortalized in the Marathon race held as the final event in every Olympic Games. Our journey includes visits to the archaeological museum, the Marathon tomb, and the race museum.

Following our exploration of Marathon, we’ll continue our adventure to ancient Rhamnus, inhabited since the Neolithic age. Renowned for its castle and port in ancient times, Rhamnus boasts attractions such as the temple of Nemesis, the goddess of divine retribution, the small temple of Themis, the goddess of Justice (5th Century BC), remnants of the local fortress, and the ancient theater. Marvel at a breathtaking panoramic view of the area from this elevated vantage point. Join us for a truly unique tour experience!
