Tourism Development Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said at the weekend that Greece was back on the global tourism map.
Opening a dance and theatre performance at the ancient temple of Poseidon in Sounion to mark World Tourism Day, the minister noted that the market was rising in Greece.
"Greece is determined to transform the legacy of the Athens 2004 Olympics into concrete benefits for its tourist economy," he said.
