it started today..
click on EN at the right top for english.
it covers very few sites in athens,crete and the peloponnese for now.
At last....! !
The eticket system looks great! A question though, I tried it out (without completing purchase yet) for the Acropolis. It shows single use entry (20E) or single use reduced (10E) but I don't see any explanation for eligibility for the reduced rate. Half price is a substantial difference!
It is only working for July and August.
No date in september is working: "E-ticketing service is not available for this specific selection."
Amazing! We are leaving for Athens in a little over a week. Has anyone used this yet with success? I’m always a little nervous with brand new systems!
stefanprisacariu keep checking,i am sure the september tickets will come up in time.
Richellekrista,since it started today i am sure no one has used it yet..hopefully in time someone will come back with his experience..it is not a big deal though,it is done by the cultural ministry of the country,so no fear for scams, etc.
That's a great idea, hopefully it will reduce the queues to get into these places. I only wonder if it's part of a longer term plan to limit visitor numbers?
Thank you Yiassus for pointing to the explanations of the reduced rates.
I used it today, a friend I was going to meet said they wanted to do Hadrian’s Library this morning, so I said I’d join them!
Bought my ticket, received an email with a pdf to download, looks as if it should be printed out & folded, it has the ticket part, a map of the site etc.
I did not print it out, showed my phone zoomed in on the ticket part (you can screenshot this bit beforehand), lady in the ticket booth said it was her first one like that :) She scanned the QR code, the same as she would on the paper ticket, that was it, I was in!
Although you still have to go to the ticket booth it will shorten queues considerably, the guy in front of me paying by card took about 4 minutes, the one in front of him took nearly as long, paying by cash, I took 30 seconds!
Hope that helps :)Edited: 5:55 am, July 20, 2018
