May 18, 2020

The Greek authorities reported on Monday that around 200 archaeological sites across the country, including the Acropolis of Athens, have been reopened to the public after two months of coronavirus closure.

Initially, only the resumption of outdoor sites will be allowed, as Greek President Ekaterini Skellaropoulou said.

As a result, it has been determined that these historical sites are open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM (local time) and have a limited number of visitors, always following the safety distance and measures to slow the progression of the virus.

From this Monday, movements in continental Greece are allowed. On the islands, however, the restrictive measures will last until June, according to the Kathimerini newspaper.
