Visiting the Athens Acropolis a totally new experienceWith the upgrading works of the services provided in the Acropolis, the Holy Rock becomes - for the first time - completely accessible not only to the disabled but also to citizens with mobility or other health problems

"Improving the visiting conditions of the monuments at the Acropolis is a priority for the Ministry of Culture and Sports. With the upgrading works of the services provided in the Acropolis, the Holy Rock becomes - for the first time - completely accessible not only to the disabled but also to citizens with mobility or other health problems," Greece's Culture Ministry said in a statement, according to ANA,

"The project is expected to be delivered on December 3, 2020, together with the new, safe state-of-the-art slope lift, making the experience of visiting the Acropolis totally different," it added.

The ministry has also attached two interesting links, regarding the paths at the Acropolis 1978 - 2020 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Px1yLUWvgRY) and the ongoing work of the paths on the rock of the Acropolis (https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxgHk2WFxrM).
