Kerameikos Cemetery - Review
The Kerameikos Cemetery is another remarkable thing to see in the Acropolis area of Athens. The cemetery is home to several graves from the ancient era. In spring, the flowers grow in the wild grass around the stone tombs making it a somber and yet beautiful sight to see.
The ruins also have many sculptures and lovely engravings on them. Notably, Pythagoras, the Mathematician was buried here. It is a pretty big area, so expect a lot to see and explore. The Pompeion and the Dipylon are two attention-grabbing buildings worth seeing.
Don’t forget to visit the Kerameikos museum to learn more about the preserved graves. They also have several artifacts and sculptures from the cemetery conserved here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Athens itinerary 7 days.

Kerameikos Cemetery, Athens Reviews
Impresive site, best understood with the help of a guide or a person with knowledge. Good also for children (under supervision). Don't miss the on-site museum with the original plus additional exhibits.
Less people more time for things to learn by walking slowly under the Sun with turtles and olive trees. There is museum and dont miss it. was organized and preserved proper way. It's interesting how this place was discovered
Got security issues... Infested with goons and pick-pockets.....but. Nice place
Beautiful and peaceful, a wonder place to visit on a quiet morning. Expansive grounds and a small museum have many ancient works if art to view and explore.
An interesting experience mostly in the museum, where you can find many interesting artefacts.
