We only had time for 30min visit but it was definitely worth it. Beautiful cemetery, very different compared to any other cemetery i've been to.

This is an interesting place. It is pretty close to where I stayed so I visited it as I went to the Panathetic stadium. I was surprised by how ornate so many of the graves were. This is clearly the final resting place for upper...More

The walk from our apartment in Plaka to the cemetery was a little bit uninspiring but on arrival at the cemetery, you are blown away. This is something wholly different to anything else in Athens. The monuments in the cemetery are fascinating. Albeit those buried...More

A beautiful place to wander for up to an hour. Many grand mausoleums and graves, with no one else to interrupt the quiet apart from the occasional cat. It is clearly still a working cemetery, but many of the graves are unloved and untended. Some...More

Peace and quiet, lovely examples of sculpture and architecture, birds singing and towering cypress certainly make this free and unusual destination worth visiting. There are some interesting “residents” (prominent figures in politics, science and the arts) as well as the less famous or wealthy interred...More

An alternative, not always at first line of "must visit" going through the majority of sites. Important sculptures, particularly Sleeping Girl of Giannoulis Halepas ans Sleeman's tomb, are mixed with other pieces demonstrating the human vanity.

This is just another old cemetery like any other. Nothing special. There are a few sculptures around.

Once you enter this cemetery, you will immediately see the details of the tombs, including their large sizes. The cemetery is full of rows and rows of tombs. One interesting aspect is the pictures of the deceased on the graves. Makes you wonder what type...More

Odd place because there are no really old grave sites to be found in any obvious places. Most are from the last 100 years. Still a nice, peaceful place to get away from the Athens crowds to contemplate life and death. Mostly there are crypts...More

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
