Coronavirus lockdowns are beginning to lift in Europe and Greece has its sights set on the summer for reopening. They intend to reopen to tourists on July 1.

Visitors will be able to sightsee and soak up the Greek sun, but they won’t be able to partake in the nightlife that makes up much of the country’s tourism revenue.
The Mediterranean country enforced a strict and early lockdown, which is considered a coronavirus success story, limiting deaths to around 150.
This week Greek businesses are starting to reopen, and if all goes according to plan, the prime minister hopes to welcome tourists as soon as July 1.

Greece’s prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, told CNN, “The tourism experience may be slightly different from what you’ve had in previous years. Maybe no bars may be open, or no tight crowds, but you can still get a fantastic experience in Greece – provided that the global epidemic is on a downward path.”
