Tourists will be able to visit Greece’s most famous heritage sites seven days a week starting in April, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said today.

The country’s 33 biggest museums and monuments, which account for 95 percent of visits and receipts, will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. all week from April 1 to end-October
