Acropolis run to shut roads in central Athens


Traffic police are to divert motorists from several central roads in Athens on Saturday afternoon as thousands of runners join the Acropolis Night Run, a 5-kilometer mini-marathon, which starts outside the Acropolis Museum at 6.30 p.m.

The run will cover much of the capital’s historic district and end where it started.

Meanwhile, traffic will also be disrupted in the central Athens area of Kolonaki on Monday between noon and 4 p.m. to allow for a ceremony marking the celebration of the holy icon of Saint Dionysios Areopagitos.
