Ancient Greece was not built with wheelchair users in mind, and modern-day visitors wishing to explore the magic of the archaeological sites of Greece might expect a hard time if they suffer with mobility impairment. While it’s true that the Greek authorities can improve onhealthy accessibility at many major sites, it’s also encouraging to see how many have been adapted in recent years to improve onhealthy accessibility.

The Acropolis in Athens http://healthsavy.com/product/nexium/ benefited from a stair lift which was installed in the run-up to the 2004 Olympics. Other sites (such as the ruins of Akrotiri on Santorini) now provide step-free access; many even offer free admission for a wheelchair user and a companion.
