Our taxi tour will take you to the spot where it all begun: according to the myth, Phidipides, an Athenian soldier, started running from the battle site to the city of Athens to announce the glorious victory. He died instantly after informing the Athenians of the great news. To his memory, the Marathon Route was introduced and is still the focal point of Athletics in all Olympic Games.
