Athens Marathon - First of many questions ;-)

A group of 4 of us are hoping to run the marathon or 10k in November and I am currently looking at accommodation but feeling rather overwhelmed as I have no idea where anything is. We want to do some touristy stuff while we are there and will be reliant on public transport. There seems to be transport to the start of the race from Syngrou Fix, Panepistimio, Syntagma, Omonoia, Evangelismos and Katechaki. Which area would you suggest as a practical base for us to stay?

Thank you.

Of the seven, Syntagma. My second choice would be Evangelismos.

Good wishes for your run! :0)

Liz, I think the organizers offer some special rates for runners. Be on the lookout here: https:/…registrations-faq-en
