After walking down the 27 meters long road-entrance of the tomb, you'll pass its monumental entrance and find yourselves inside the actual burial site.

THE SECRET PASSAGES
At the northern part of Athens, close to the foothills of Mount. Penteli, there is a secret gem that will definitely compensate you to the fullest for the 40 min car-ride required for you to get there. The Valanari river ends up to a small waterfall which creates a shallow pool, ideal for a quick refreshing dip! Depended on the flow of the river, you may even find two waterfalls instead of one!
This waterfall may be the only one still surviving in Athens. Its clear waters coming from the springs of Penteli promise you a unique experience. You can reach the waterfalls either by car or maybe choose to use the city's public transport.
There is a bus route available that will take you on the spot! In the National Park of Sounio at the southern part of Attica, exists an awe-inspiring landmark often ignored by visitors. It is a huge crater , more than meters wide and 55 meters deep! Some people claim that the creation of this crater was the product of a meteorite fall.
