Tour guides and guards on the Acropolis are on strike today, Thursday. Also on strike are tug boat operators and pilots in the port of Peiraieus. This caused the cruise ship Musica an alleged three-hour delay in tying at port this morning, delaying a shore excursion to Athens monuments (some of which, as previously mentioned, are inaccessible). A nationwide strike has been declared by public and private sector unions for next Thursday, May 20.
