EXPLORE AND EXPERIENCE
Only the best make the list.
Combine your stay with memorable and historical excursions and gastronomy selections.
Historically this area identifies with the Battle of Marathon which took place in 490 BC. This is where the Persian army made camp and such a culturally rich area of Attica that no one should forego. Over 5000 years of Greek civilization unfolded here. The Marathon’s Battle Trophy is within walking distance from the Park and if you have the time (!) make a point of visiting the archaeological site and museum of Marathon. If you would like a more detailed description of Marathon, which is something that I would recommend, it would be a good idea to enlist the expertise of a licensed guide which can be arranged for you.
THE SCHINIAS OLYMPIC AND ROWING CENTER
The Schinias Rowing Center began operation in 2004 and hosted the rowing events of theAthens Olympic Games. The rowing center has a total length of 2250 meters and a capacity of 14,000 seats. The centre is one of only three FISA-approved training centers in the world, the others being in Munich and Seville. The center also houses the Marathon Rowing Kayaking Academy which gives the opportunity to children and adults to learn and participate in this exciting sport. The Olympic Center also offers hotel facilities, restaurant and fitness rooms, and hosts special groups from abroad who wish to accomplish their preparatory programs in Greece.
GO AHEAD AND SWIM
After all your sightseeing is done don’t leave without enjoying a swim at the beautiful pine fringed beach of Schinias, considered as one of the most beautiful and cleanest beaches in Athens. Perfect for families and windsurfers. After a full and eventful day stop by the Psaropoula fish restaurant which is located right on Schinias beach and is by far the best choice for lunch in the area.
NATIONAL GARDEN OF ATHENS
The National Garden of Athens was designed in 1836 by the German architect Friedrich von Gaertner, and was initially an idea of Queen Amalia, who reigned in that period. Until 1974 it was named Royal Garden. The area which it covers, extends from Amalias Avenue to Irodou Attikou, where the Royal Palace used to be situated and from Vasilissis Sofias Avenue to the Zappion. Visitors to the Garden can see an interesting variety of plants and trees, some ancient remains, statues of famous poets and politicians, a sundial, ponds with ducks and fish, a small zoo and several pergolas and secluded romantic corners. Athenians love to walk in the quiet, cool Garden, which is open from sunrise to sunset, children can play in the specially designed playground with swings and seesaws, or visit the children?s library and adults can enjoy a coffee or a light lunch at the coffee shop.
