        Strollers no go; only small backpack or handbag permitted from April 1, the start of this year’s tourist season. Strollers/push chairs will have to be left in arrival area under care of staff. With ticket prices up, entry to #Knossos, #Crete’s leading tourist attraction goes up from €6.00 to €15.00 for adults. That appears to be one of the highest percentage increases. Meanwhile, the most expensive entry appears to be at the gem of #Greece’s tourism industry, the Acropolis in Athens which is now to be €20.00 up from €12.00.

        Central Archaeological Council (KAS) the official coordinating entity protecting Greece’s cultural treasures announced these new moves. KAS is also bringing in new measures for free admission and to whom and when. That will include rationing the numbers of visitors at any one time inside of a site.

        Perhaps expecting a backlash, the Ministry of Culture is already trumpeting the possibility of reducing the off season ticket prices to perhaps 50% in the November to March period. The message from officials is directed to those local and foreign visitors who can afford to wait until the off season.

        Compare hotel prices and find the best deal -
