Greece is set to introduce an exclusive opportunity for visitors to enjoy a private, two-hour guided tour of the renowned Acropolis Hill.

According to ekathimerini.com, the private visit will cost 5,000 euros. The decision, which was approved by the Central Archaeological Council (KAS) on Wednesday, targets small groups seeking a unique experience. The first private tours are scheduled to begin on April 1, 2024.

The private tours, accommodating up to four individuals, will be available during sunrise (7-9 a.m.) or sunset (8-10 p.m.) in the summer months on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, excluding full moon nights. Participants will receive souvenirs as part of the package.

KAS also announced a revised ticket policy after five years. The changes will apply from April 1, 2025, and involve increased entrance fees for museums and archaeological sites. The Acropolis Hill’s general entrance ticket will rise to 30 euros, with other sites and museums varying from 5 to 20 euros, contingent on visitor numbers and location.

Free admission will be extended to two Sundays monthly. Additionally, five major Greek museums, now independent entities, will establish their own pricing policies. These museums are the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, the Archaeological Museum of Iraklio, the Byzantine & Christian Museum (Athens), and the Museum of Byzantine Culture (Thessaloniki).

These ticket prices will be applicable throughout the year, as the previous practice of lower winter prices is abolished.
