After visiting the Acropolis and the Agora, I take you with me today visiting the Kerameikos cemetery. But first, some practical information: – The site is located west of the Agora. To get there, walk Ermou Street in an area almost deserted, after the metro station Thissio. – The Kerameikos cemetery is one of 6 websites that you can visit with the combined ticket which costs 12€ and allows you to visit the Acropolis, the Theatre of Dionysus, the Roman Agora, the Olympian Zeus, the Agora and therefore Kerameikos cemetery. Otherwise, the entry costs 2 €.

To the left of the entrance there is a small museum that provides cooling (thanks air conditioning!) and discoveries of some objects that were in the tombs of the cemetery but also with statues of surrounding.

Leaving the museum, we continued the tour on the left where the cemetery is located and where the vegetation has reclaimed. The location and quiet and quite nice.

The right part of the site is much less interesting but you can walk there before leaving.
