Running Tour Athens & Hydra Island

Scholars call Greece the cradle of Western Civilization, and Athens was the cultural epicenter of ancient Greece. You’ll run through those same pathways Socrates, Plato and Aristotle once roamed discussing philosophy, mathematics, astrology and science, up to the marble-white Parthenon, with a stunning panoramic view of Attica, down through the ancient Agora and Plaka to the Panhellenic Stadium, sight of the first modern Olympics. You’ll visit the seaside town of Marathon, where the father of long-distance running, Phidippides, started his fabled run to Athens that inspired the modern marathon. You’ll also visit the artistic and free-spirited island of Hydra, where cars are not allowed and all travel is by foot or donkey. The journey will come to an unforgettable conclusion at the Temple of Poseidon, constructed in 440 BC.
