Show trip route
It is afternoon and we are out to do some exploring.
Approximately 12 kms from Nea Makri we come to Marathonas. The drive out here this afternoon is because I want to be aware of what to expect when I return again soon.
Lovely Seafood restaurants, several traditional and cosy taverns and modern beach bars beautify the seafront in the town and just behind the crowded sandy beach stretches out for miles extending out to the beach of Schinias on the northern edge of the Bay backed by a famous strand of pine forest
Orange KTEL buses run from Pedio of Areos (central Athens).
The cost is 3.70 euros and the trip lasts 90 minutes.

Now besides my photos, I have for you a couple of other links about the town of Marathon and the Archaeological Museum.
The Archaeological Museum of Marathon has a very interesting collection of ancient artifacts found in this general area including many relating to the 2490 BC Battle of Marathon. There are also some partly excavated burial chambers. The Archaeological Museum of Marathon:
