Greece: Tourists return to Acropolis as site reopens after COVID shutdown

Greece has reopened the Acropolis in Athens on Monday for the first time in two months, following the easing of restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 health crisis. Tourists were seen visiting the site, which can host up to 2,000 people. However, limited amount of people are allowed and social distancing rules must be observed. «I'm feeling very excited because it's very weird. Usually here... Еще, there are a lot of people and today it's empty. It's beautiful,» said Virna, an Erasmus student from Italy visiting the Acropolis site. While museums will remain closed until June 15, the Greek government reopened around 200 archaeological sites across the country. The tourists are domestic for now, as a 14-day quarantine is required for arrivals. Travel to islands is still restricted.
