ATHENS, Greece — The Acropolis reopened Friday after a labor dispute kept out thousands of visitors for three days from debt-ridden Greece's most famous monument — seen as an enduring symbol of ancient democracy.

Filing through a double line of riot police protecting the gates, tourists started entering the ancient site, as guards ended a five-hour strike.

The walkout came on the heels of a two-day blockade by hundreds of Culture Ministry employees, who were forcibly dispersed Thursday by riot police using tear gas.
