Description:

Along the lower end of Ermou (heading towards Gazi) is Keramikos, the main cemetery of ancient Athens. There are two gates at the cemetery walls, the Dipylon Gate through which travellers used to enter the ancient city and the Sacred Gate used during the Panathenaic and Eleusinian processions. There are tombs here dating back to the 12th century BC, and also a small museum on the site. Closest metro station is Thissio and a little further is Keramikos. Tour around Monastiraki and the Ancient Agora.
