The times, they are a-changing

Greek Archaeological Sites’ Hours of Operation Changing

Most museums, historical exhibits, and archaeological sites throughout the country will operate between the hours of 08:30 and 15:30.

Major Greek archaeological sites which attract thousands of visitors throughout the year, such as the Acropolis in Athens, Knossos in Crete and the ancient theater of Epidauros in the Peloponnese, will be open for longer hours. These sites will remain open at their regular summer hours, between 08:00 and 17:00 every day.

From January 7 onward, more sites will be operating on a seven-day-per-week basis. The rest of the sites in Greece will operate on a six-day-per-week basis, with the closed day  changing from Monday to Tuesday from January 7, 2019 onward.

This most recent decision was made because of the increasingly popular practice across Europe of taking ”long weekends” and city-breaks which tend to be three-day mini-vacations.
