We made our way through a grittier part of town to the Keramikos Cemetery, named for the ceramics workshops that used to surround it. There were a few headstones, in the cemetery but most had been brought into the small museum. The little museum was...More

Part of the 7 sites 30 euros deal, this is a real ancient cemetery more than 3000 years old. And even after so many years they had an archeological team who still excavates the site and find new artifacts.

This is a neat place to visit but without a guide or a guidebook you won't know much often history. It is an active archeological site.

We visited at the end of an afternoon of walking. There is lots to see and learn here. Me and my wife were surprised at how much we enjoyed the walk around and the learning experience.

The site is decent sized, so you enjoy a nice stroll around. I like that they have recreations of some of the monuments out in the site, so you can see what it would have looked like. They also have a museum with many of...More

Even though going to a cemetery does not sound very interesting, there is actually a lot of history there. There is a hill near the entrance where you can see the whole cemetery and also a small church. But when we went in March though,...More

Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide
some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost
claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an
interesting blend of original small businesses with
the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently
sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron
Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further
west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of
