  • A place not very popular, but not for this minor interest compared to other well known and crowded sites. You descend from the Metro to the Kerameikos stop, then, paths about three hundred meters (there are few indications) and crossed a very busy artery (Odos Pireos), you arrive in this oasis of greenery (but it is good to go in the less hot hours, also because it lacks places of refreshment). There it is advisable to have a guide and a map in the tiny bookshop before venturing into a little labyrinthine path and thus have indications and points of reference along the way, which is almost completely devoid of it. The museum is admirable, containing the precious finds found in the cemetery of the ceramics (extraordinary the marble bull, the Sphinx, but also other beautiful funerary stelae, well illustrated by panels). For those who do not do a stay "hit and Run" (and Love Antiquity) is a place to visit.

  • I was not aware of it was thanks to the wide and convenient offer of the €30 ticket that we visited. The visit occupies at least 3/4 hours the site is vast and inside there is also a museum part very rich and interesting. In the necropolis you can also meet two land turtles.

  • A nice green space in the middle of streets and busy roads, quiet and peaceful and nice to walk around. There are signs to tell you the significance of each area. There are toilets and a small gallery. I even saw a tortoise walking around!
  • You can learn something from the museum actually and they had bathrooms. The site itself is a challenge, just a lot of ruins...a few interesting monuments.
