We pick you up from your hotel in Athens and we head out to:

 

Marathon Tomb where a battle between the Greeks (Athenians and Plataeans) and the Persians took place in 490 BC. The Persian force landed in the bay and the Athenians with their allies and Miltiades the Athenian generaldefeated them and forced them to leave in Asia. According to the modern historians and scholars this battle is the most important for the human history. After this visit we go to the Archaeological Museum of Marathon and the Marathon Lake. The Marathon Lake is an artificial one that was created in 1931 to collect water for the water supply of Athens that started to give water till 1959. The lake extends to 2450 acres with a maximum depth of 54 metres. The altitude of the dam is 227 metres above the sea level. Returning to Athens our last stop is to Vavrona a very important archaeological place in Athens known for goddess Artemis temple. During the era of Theseus (Bronze age) Vavrona was one of the 20 municipalities which joined and later constituted the Athenian State. Vavrona was gradually evolved into a worship place for Artemis and a temle was dedicated to her.
