As a quick and easy drive from Athens, Marathon is a rather cool destination worth seeing. About 45 minutes from the city along quite a scenic path, we visited both the site of the Battle of Marathon as well as the museum.
The site itself includes a large diagram of the way the battle panned out, as well as the Tumulus, a giant mound. A short drive away is the archaeological museum
The only monument at the battlefield. Moving on to the museum..
And a stop at a roadside stand on the way home 🙂 Back when tomatoes were in season..
