Historical Battle Tour

Marathon, Thermopylae

Starting from Athens Athens in the morning ,drive through the fertile plain of Mesogia.

Visit the battlefields of Marathona and the tombs of the Athenian soldiers who died in the battle.

Leave Marathon for the drive to Thermopylae stopping to see the statue of Leonidas. This is a tour strictly to see the battlefields and the scenery, there are no ancient ruins to see. The morphology of the ground has changed due to erosion by rain and sea. You can still get a good idea of how the battle must have been and where it took place.
