ATHENS -- The site of the Acropolis will be closed on Tuesday due to works improving access to visitors with special mobility needs, the Culture ministry announced on Monday.

Visitors can instead visit the Acropolis' south slope, where the Dionysus Elefthereos Theater and the Asklepieion of Athens are located, it added. Entrance will be free of charge.
