Major sites in Greece to have Visa contactless ticket machines installed


In an announcement on Thursday by Visa, six contactless automated ticket vending machines will be installed at some of Greece’s major archaeological sites.

The service is expected to improve the experience for visitors to sites, with the aim to help avoid long queues by allowing people to pay for their tickets with their cards, phones, or smart watches.

In what is viewed as a new flagship project, Visa has collaborated with Cardlink to install these machines at popular sites such as the Acropolis, Ancient Olympia, Epidaurus archaeological sites and the Archaeological Museum of Delphi to help with the overall tourist experience.
