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.
The Mediterranean country enforced a strict and early lockdown, which is considered a coronavirus success story, limiting deaths to around 150.
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.”
