We loved our visit to this cemetery. You wouldn't normally think of a cemetery as a tourist attraction but this is the exception. The graves and mausoleums are works of art and deserve to be admired. The entire cemetery is also like walking through a garden. It is peaceful and quiet and an opportunity to enjoy something without the crowds that you find at other attractions and there is no charge.
We had only one full day to see a little of what the city had to offer and this was surprisingly one of my favorite things that we did.
We also came across a couple of men who were kind enough to tell us more about a grave we were looking at that belongs to Odysseas Androutsos, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. It was wonderful to learn more about it from some locals. They were very proud.
I wish we had had more time to explore as the grounds are large. This is also a great activity in Athens considering the current health crisis, considering there are so few visitors there.
