Kerameikos – The ancient cemetery

At the end of the pedestrian area of Ermou, between the streets Pireos, Ermou and Asomaton, you can find the entrance of Kerameikos,

Kerameikos is the most important cemetery of ancient Athens and used to be the border of the city. It used to be a part of the Municipality of “Kerameon”, one of the biggest municipalities of Ancient Athens. 

When you enter the site, time starts to move at a different rhythm, you forget the hectic pace of Pireos street where all these cars are passing by and you can just relax looking at the turtles taking a moment of rest under the olive trees. Lose yourself among margarita flowers, statues and ancient graves. 

Do not miss visiting its museum as well, with really interesting exhibitions that can be found only in this area!
