  • In Athens for the third time, we decide to visit this cemetery: it is obviously a quiet place where you can see graves of wealthy people enriched by remarkable statues. There are graves of politicians (heads of state and government, ministers) actors, directors, singers. Unfortunately, there is no map indicating the location of the graves. You have to rely on the (vague) guardians' directions.

  • We love visiting cemeteries but unfortunately, this was a huge disappointment. I wouldn't bother making a trip here. Not very interesting and seems like everything is quite new - quite a few mourners ...  more »

  • A fantastic cemetery full of statues and graves of famous people. If you like photography you will love it. There are more than 12.000 graves and more than 700 sculptures. Highly recommended place to relax and imagine our final destination.
  • This is an interesting place. It is pretty close to where I stayed so I visited it as I went to the Panathetic stadium. I was surprised by how ornate so many of the graves were. This is clearly the final resting place for upper middle class and rich people. It is quiet, tranquil and an cool place to visit. It is worth checking out if you have a chance.
