  • We do walk by the Adrianou Street, Ermou street or the metro (Station Thissio). It's a cemetery marked gravestones, statues and funerary objects. With a quiet atmosphere specific to the realms of the dead. But the site also hosts a beautiful small museum with many objects and representations in connection with ancient rites but also of pottery vestige of activity that dominated the site. Ticket coupled with that of the Acropolis

  • This site is included in the 30 euro combo ticket you can buy at the Acropolis. I went here as an afterthought, because it's a longer walk than the other sites, but I am really glad I did. The relics ...  read more »

  • I loved my visit here. You might visit the Archaeological Museum first and see all of the beautiful ancient tombstones there, then head to this ancient Athenian cemetery to see where they were located. The site also has a small, excellent museum. Some of the tombstones in place are original, others are reproductions. The road through the cemetery led to Ancient Athens and was called the Sacred Way. The site also includes the location of Plato's Academy. Keep your eyes out for a cool tortoise that wanders through the place. But puh-leeze, don't pound on his shell, like so many tourists do! Poor tortoise.
  • West of the Ancient Agora people often overlook this very cool place! Not only a cemetery's where the ruin of the Dipylon Gate is (the biggest of the 15 gates of Ancient Athens' Themistolceian city wall) It was where all the potters were (Kerameis). Small and easy to see.
  • It was absolutely astounding and my family loved it
  • A less known symbol of the ancient Athenian glory. The walls are well preserved and so does the cemetery.
  • One of the most beautiful archaeological sites of Athens
