The ancient cemetery of Kerameikos is one of my favourite sites in Athens . It contains some very impressive finds . A visit to the well organised museum to start with gives the site some context and is worth visiting in itself to view the marvellous kouros figure found there in recent years . The pictures of it in its location and being recovered are fascinating . The site itself is interesting and there are information boards around to explain the areas . If you are lucky you can also spot a native tortoise or two wandering around . The toilets are spotless too .

This ancient monument appears to be little known as it is outside the main area in Athens and a 20 minute walk from the Agora. The pass for the Acropolis and Agora also covers the cost of admission to the Kerameikos. This is another incredibly important part of ancient Athens with the remains of the city walls visible. it is disappointing as there is very little information available within and the district is run-down.

This is one of the sites on the 12 euro combo ticket for the acropolis.
Well worth visiting and not missing,
You can see some old city walls from the old walls that surrounded the city,
A marble bull
The sacred gate and the path of the sacred way, which originally stretched 20km
Various tombs from warrior tombs along with others.
Dipylon which was the grand entrance to Athens.

Now to find it, when you come out of the metro look for some old gas odometers, walk up the road to the right of the gas towers, at the end of this road go diagonally left across the road onto cobbled street and it's straight up there (there is also a sign directing the museum up a road which is wrong so don't follow it.) If at any point you cross the train track under or over you've missed it.

Don't skip this site

One of my favorite walks on a cool Sunday morning. One meanders by the tombs of this Ancient Cemetery situated along the banks of the third river of ancient Athens, Iridanos. The main entrance to the City, the Dipilon (two gates) was there. A charming small museum ends the visit.

This is part of the included ticket of Acropolis and highly recommended in going. This is further away from the main sites, but hop into the subway and it's easily reachable. The nice cute museum inside has lots of great every day life artifacts. The cemeteries are worth visiting.
