Akrotiri archaeological site in Santorini: open?

I heard Akrotiri is closed, as it was 4 years ago when we were last in Santorini. Does anyone know if it really is closed or not, and if so, when they plan to re-open? We're going the week before Labor Day. Thanks!

Still closed, repairs haven't even started. Plans were submitted earlier this year and are still in the review stage. Don't expect it to be open for at least another year.

Bummer...thanks for the information! Looks like I'll be "forced" to return to Santorini another time!

Hey Al,
Just went to Santorini in June - closed. We were there ten years ago - closed. I'm not too sure I'll be able to ever get to see it. :(

Ah....but Santorini is really the closest thing to heaven on earth so enjoy it! :)
