We were surprised to find such an interesting sight tucked away in Elefsina. The site had good English descriptions and the museum had some impressive exhaust bits. Good restaurants and coffee in nearby town .

This site was well worth the slight detour going from Athens to Corinth. It is not the largest archaeological site in Attica by any means. In fact, it is pretty quaint compared to many other sites that we visited. It was extra special though because...More

You need a lively imagination (or a good guide) to understand how this site was used in ancient times. The explanatory panels are succinct and technical and a hand-out guide and itinerary at the entrance would be very helpful.

The archaeological site of Eleusis, with the glorious past. It is a must but before you go, you must read about the site, its history about the Mysteries - irrespective of whether you have a guide or not. It will be easier to "grasp" quickly...More
