Marathon Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Marathon is located 42 kilometer from Athens - what a surprise. The story goes that when the Greeks defeated the Persians in a big battle in Marathon, one of the soldiers ran all the way back the Acropolis to tell the people of Athens that had won. He ran as fast as he could and he made it - but after bringing the good news he died.
