The online e-ticket purchase service for the archaeological sites and museums participating in the project’s initial phase comes into effect and includes the Acropolis and the archaeological sites located in the historical center of Athens, Knossos, the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion and the archaeological site and museum of Ancient Messina.

The Ministry of Culture also informs that, at the initiative of the Deputy Minister of Culture and Sport Kostas Stratis, “a working group has been set up to monitor the smooth development of the e-ticket” and notes that “visitors must buy their tickets online or from the official points of sale (ticket offices) or, in the case of group visits, through licensed travel and tourist agencies”.

The project is being implemented with a donation from the National Bank of Greece and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and the Society of Messinian Archaeological Studies as the intermediary.
