U.S. President Barack Obama will make his keynote speech in Athens at the Pnyka ancient site overlooking the Acropolis Hill, after Greece’s Central Archaeological Council granted rare permission to use the site.
Obama’s visit on November 15-16 has been described by the government as “historic” and his speech, scheduled for November 16, will focus on the values of democracy, it was announced.
The U.S. President will stand at a plateau outside the Doridis telescope, near the Athens Observatory’s visitors’ center in Thisio.
