the road to get there is under construction, but you can still get there. There arr new signs, so its easy to find now. Big parking lot. When you get there its 2 euro per adult and kids entry is free. First they show you a movie they made, what is good to watch, so you know something about what your going to see. a tip, come early lime 9am so its not to hot. You will walk around on a cemetery and see some old caves they build for graves. In one of them you can see some skeltons lying there. After that you take a walk about 850m up to a small hill where the settelment is. It has a nice view. It was ok with kids specially from the age of 6, my daughter loved it. Only as expected, when it got warmer she didnt liked the walking part anymore so we made sure we were like done there.

Not many people know about this ancient cemetery. They have found over 100 tombs. Tomb five has the Skelton’s of soldiers. Great view of city. The ticket attendant was very knowledgeable of the area and spent time with us explaining. The site was not busy, we were the only one there. It cost 2E to get in. Amazing site and great view of the city. Would highly recommend to everyone, along with the archaeological museum. A bit difficult to find, don’t give up. Not far from Center. Small
Road leading to the site is being paved.

Very quiet but interesting park, gorgeous views over the coast, fascinating to look at the tombs and imagine life there. Good to go to the museum in town after the park to see the items that were found in the burial sites. Teenagers liked the skeletons!

This must be an undiscovered gem of the Peloponnese – it remains a mystery to me why, on a sunny morning in mid-September, we were the only visitors. Some reviewers have referred to the site being difficult to find, but it is well signposted once you are in the vicinity. Clearly a navigational device of some sort does help. Just make the effort!
The absence of visitors played in to our hands, however – the friendly custodian abandoned the desk briefly and gave us an introductory tour of the closest part of the site. Thanks for that!
What you will see is an extensive site on a hillside which is peppered with tombs dug into the sloping terrain. Most can be inspected from inside, some still have their entrances blocked, and one contains four skeletons in situ. Be sure to take the longer walk across to a higher point where the remains of the Mycenaean village can be found.
There’s no museum on the site – but a short drive over to the northern suburbs of Patras will take you to the new and spectacular Archaeological Museum, where you will be able to see many of the magnificent finds from Voundeni.

The road to Voundeni is a bit difficult to find, but the place is rewarding. The site comprises the ancient cemetery and the settlement. Tombs of different sizes can be visited and one of them contains some skeletal remainings! The 800 m walk to the settlement through olive groves and small vineyards is worth visiting and offers amazing views of the patraic gulf. A very nice experience overall!
