Event Schedule
• Start time of Marathon race: 09.00am
Limit time: The Marathon Race is concluded at 17.30, by when all runners should have reached the finish line.

Route
The first 200m of the course are slopping, leading the runners away from the Start area. The first 4 kilometers go downhill. The runners run along the Marathonos Avenue up to the 4thkm, where they turn left and enter the Marathonomachon Str., and area of the Marathon Tomb (War Memorial), which they follow for the next 2.2km. The course follows a rather circular route around the War Memorial.

The course becomes flat from the 6th to the 10thkm (Nea Makri). From the 11th to the 17thkm the course goes uphill at certain parts. Then, and up to Rafina Junction, the runners meet a steep descent. Starting from the Rafina Junction, the course goes uphill again, while the most difficult part is found up to the 20thkm. As the runners pass along the district of Pikermi, they run through some of the, more or less, uphill parts of the course up to the 25thkm. The passage through the city of Pallini (27km - 28km) is also uphill. The last and most difficult part of the course starts from Gerakas and goes up to Stavros Junction (30km – 31km). This steep ascent is followed by a steep descent leading to the Agia Paraskevi Square. Then, the runners follow the Mesogeion Avenue, going through the districts of Chalandri and Cholargos, meeting flat and downhill parts of the course up to the finish. The most characteristic downhill part is the one that starts form the Ministry of National Defense and finishes at the Katechaki Junction (37.5km), where the runners pass under the relevant bridge.
Right after the Erricos Dynnan Hospital, the runners continue left on Michalakopoulou Avenue until the traffic lights at Michalakopoulou and Pheidippidou crossroad. They continue running on Pheidippidou Str., until the crossroad at Kiffisias & Alexandras Avenue. The latter crossroad highlights the 39thkm, while the runners continue left on Vas. Sofias Avenue. On Vas. Sofias Avenue, the runners pass by the American Embassy, the Athens Music Hall and the Park of Liberty (40km), where the last feed zone is located. As they reach the Hilton Hotel, they slightly turn right heading towards the Syntagma Square, passing by the Evaggelismos Hospital and the War Museum.
At the last part of the Marathon Course and having turned on the Hrodou Attikou Street, the runners have eye contact with the Panathinaikon Stadium, passing by the Presidential Residency and the National Gardens. Only a few meters remain in order for the runners to enter the Stadium and run the last meters inside it, before reaching the finish line.

Athens is considered the intellectual and artistic center of Greece, a jewel of the ancient world. It is the city where mankind's most precious and most significant moral values were founded. Philosophy, science, literature, art and drama are just some of the concepts born in ancient Athens. Democracy, freedom, justice and forward thinking are ideas conceived in this great city, which are the core principles of western civilization and our society today. So much of Ancient Greek History took place in the city of Athens.


Athens, the city of intellect, is part of the Attica basin situated at the south-eastern tip of the Greek mainland. The city of Athens is the capital of Greece and it is the country’s heart and its economic and industrial, as well as political and cultural center.

The City had the honor of hosting the 2004 Olympic Games which led to major changes in the area: a new international airport, new metro lines and a new ring road around the city were constructed, while new landscaping added millions of indigenous trees and shrubs to the region. The Athens 2004 Olympic Games added a significant chapter to the history of the city, leaving behind an important legacy as far as infrastructure and technology are concerned, and putting Athens among the most hospitable metropolis of the world.

What to See
The first place you should visit when in Athens is, of course, the Acropolis. Standing up there, on the sacred rock as the Greeks call it, you can practically feel the magnificence of ancient Greece. Don't think you'll be alone there though.
Other archaeological sites are the agora, the market, with the temple to Hephaistos still in a quite good shape, as well as the temple to Zeus and the arch of Hadrian.
Museums of interest are, amongst others, the Acropolis museum, the National Archeological Museum, the Folklore museum, the Ceramics museum (Keramikos), the Byzantine museum, the Music Museum, the War Museum, the Benaki museum etc. All in all, there are about 50 museums in Athens. A popular place for shopping or food and drink is Plaka, just below the Acropolis. It is considered quite a touristy area, but the fact is that you here can get an idea of old Athens, with low buildings and little streets.
In Monastiraki, there is a bazaar which is quite incredible, in Hephaestus street and around the small square of
At the Syntagma Square, you can visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Here you can see the guards in their impressing uniforms, the Evzones, and if you are lucky you will see the slow and complicated change of guards. You can also feed pigeons here. Interestingly, there used to be a tomb to the unknown hero in ancient Athens
The opera, Megaron Mousikis, holds many wonderful performances, but even lovelier is the Herodes Atticus theatre just below the Acropolis.

What to do
Athens Greece has such a wide variety of things to do that it almost is no idea to write it all down. For example, you have all the sights and the museums, concert halls and theatres. Then, there are many cinemas, a great nightlife, bazaars, fashion shops and super modern shopping malls. Go up to the Lycavitos hill and get a wonderful view. You can go to Athens Riviera from Paleon Faliron up to Kalamaki, Alimos, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza for some sun and sea. You can visit as well the National gardens that are located next to the Parliament at Syntagma square.

Beaches
There are several beaches at Athens Riviera The most popular ones are in Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, Nea Makri, Crysi Akti (Golden Coast ), Lagonisi, Kavouri, and Alimos. Most of the beaches in Athens are organize and you have to pay a small entrance fee to these beaches - this is to keep them clean since it has millions of visitors every summer.

Nightlife
Jazz bars, discos, bouzouki clubs, heavy metal bars - it's all here. There are places all over Athens, but the most frequented areas are Syntagma, Kolonaki and Glyfada. Almost in every square in all Athenian suburbs, there are Cafeterias and bars that during the night are becoming music bars with professional DJ's..

Food and restaurants
Just like the bars, the restaurants and taverns are everywhere in Athens. The Plaka area is probably the most picturesque, but also the most visited by tourists. Keep a lookout for the places with lots of Greeks in them - that applies all over Greece. In Syntagma and Kolonaki there are also many places, and in Glyfada and Vouliagmeni you are close to the sea, and the atmosphere is usually a little bit more sophisticated. The area Psiri not far from Acropolis is very expensive with lots of lovely places with live music day and night. In Athens you will find a plethora of fast food like Mc Donald's ,Wendy's the Greek chain of Goody's ,Pizza hut ,Starbucks , and many other famous chains but the most typical fast food in Greece is the souvlaki .But as I said, there is a place in every corner and you can get absolutely anything you want.

Shopping
Being Greece's capital you can find everything if you for shopping in Athens. The big shopping street is Ermou, just off Syntagma square, Glyfada and Kolonaki are the exclusive quarters with many boutiques and shops. In Plaka, you'll find lots of souvenirs from all over Greece, and the biggest department store is Vassilopoulos. In Monastiraki, there is a great flea market every day and many antiquity shops. These are just a few examples though, there are shops just about everywhere. On Athinas street you will find many interesting shops that sell herbs and many shops that sale dry fruits and nuts also on the same street located the main fish and meat market of Athens both are worth visiting

Getting Around
In Athens, while the overcrowded buses usually just pass the bus stops, leaving you there with a long face, the new Athens Metro is an excellent way to get around (it is also very beautiful, worth a visit just to see it). There are also electric trams and trolleys that are quite efficient to take you all the way to the Athens coasts.

Getting There
In March 2001 the new airport Eleftherios Venizelos at Spata was opened. It is hypermodern and with the new road connections through the Attiki Odos and Metro, suburban rail. Without traffic jams, it takes about 45 minutes to get there from the center of Athens by the express buses (X 95 Airport Syntagma square ) (X 96 Airport Piraeus), but unfortunately sometimes especially on weekdays pick hours, traffic jams are more rules than exceptions. But with the new extensions, you can use the Suburban train (Proastiakos) until Neratziotisa station and continue with the Athens Metro that goes to Syntagma (blue line) or to Omonoia from Doukissis Plakentias station (green line) .

If you are coming from the islands the ferry boats will stop at Piraeus, Port Rafina (Cyclades Andros) or Agios Konstantinos from the Sporades islands. The train runs through the whole of Greece - starting in Thrace, through Thessaloniki, Larisa to Athens, and is also connected with the Peloponnese (Kiato). You can browse through hundreds of tours and activities here:

Do not miss the suburbs of Athens! From Glyfada to Piraeus and from Faliro to Chalandri and Kifissia, Athens has many attractions all over. This is why we have selected the best car rental offer available for you! Book here:
