  • We only went there because it was included in the ticket, but we were so impressed by the small museum: alone worth the visit! A little less interesting to the outside. A word of advice: walk from Monastiraki square; the stop "Keramikos" of the blue line is distant and there are no reporting to get to the site.

  • large terrain on which you search freely can move with many stones, pillars and tombs, also an interesting Museum. Can ticket (the large package) be visited with the Akropolis-.

  • Unless you're really interested in archeology or wish to see some interesting polygonal wall, the trip to the site is not that worth it. We took the metro to keramikos station, then from there we had ...  more »

  • Worth seeing but just for once; a cozy museum completes the experience
  • 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 ...it'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 relaxing and interesting place to visit
