Kerameikos, Athens: 23 reviews and 52 photos
That seemed to be something i want to see, i like old special cemitaries.
I packed my little bag in the second day and went to a long walk which brought me to this site. The ancient cemetery of Athens.
Everything was quiet there... too quiet... It felt like something was wrong... yes i felt right about it... it was closed ! closed ? i asked the Lady i've seen there inside, yes she said closed, for a year.
Only after a few days there i realized that everything in Athens was Either closed or (mostly) under construction...
Oh well, i wasn't about to get upset, although in this specific case i was quite dissapointed.
So check carefuly about it before you go there.
However Just a few words about this place, Kerameikos was named after Keramos, The son of Dionysios & Ariadne, hero of potters. The area was used continuously for burials from the twelfth century BC for a thousand years.
Directions: Follow Ermou street down from the Monastiraki train station and you will easily find it on your right.
