By Greece Private Tours

Marathon -Thermopylae - Delphi tour starts from Athens in the morning (do not hesitate to request another terminal)...  Visit the battlefields of Marathon and the tombs of the Athenian soldiers who died in the battle. We will drive to Marathon bay, and maybe see the killing marshes ...next we will visit the Marathon museum 6km farther...

 

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 few 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. To obtain more detailed  information on the sites and what took place at Marathon and Thermopylae please use the links.  Next we will visit the new interactive museum, where we get info and watch an informative detailed 3d video of the battle.
