I really like visiting here, just down from the flea market, this small site gave us a great opportunity to walk through the remains of the ancient city and the cemetery. The small museum had some great tomb monuments and items found on site including...More

This is a ruin of an ancient cemetery site as well as the remains of ruined city walls. Most of it is in a state of complete ruin, so unless you're a huge fan of ruins or ancient Greece you wont see much that's interesting....More

The keramikos cemetery has a rich history and is located on Ermou street. There is a small museum with some interesting relics that include artefacts over 3000 years old (which is incredible when you think about it). The main site is a large grassy area...More

This place holds no big surprises except for the museum at the entrance. The site has been picked clean of anything interesting and left it more like a rocky meadow then an attraction. If you do enter, the plaquecs dotted around the main pathway, do...More

There is nothing I can add. An excellent small museum, a beautiful green area by the pedestrian street of Ermou, the cemetery of the most famous ancient greeks to enjoy -yes enjoy- in your walk. And a small interesting museum.

There is beauty and sadness at this site. Beauty in the sculptures and the feelings they embody and in the artifacts, but sadness in what they represent...the end of a life and the loss of loved ones. The small, but wonderful museum embodied this feeling....More

A beautiful ,peaceful place to visit - the main cemetery in Athens in ancient times and it is very easy to get a picture of its one time significance from the extensive ruins visitable here. There is a lovely little museum within the complex with...More

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 to walk a few minutes to a main road,...More

Located further away from main sites, this place is not the most popular attraction, but still worth visiting since it gives insight into ancient burial ceremonies. Most structures are destroyed, so imagination is required to visualize how these buildings looked like some few centuries ago.

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
