Acropolis hours on December 31st

I'm planning a two day layover in Athens arriving on December 31st and leaving on January 2nd.

We would love to visit the Acropolis on December 31st. However the sites I have checked show conflicting information on hours:

http://odysseus.culture.gr - Visiting hours: 08:00-20:00 Last admission: 19:30;

https://archaeology-travel.com - Winter hours 8:00 - 17:00

www.athenstourgreece.com - Winter hours 8:00 - sunset

http://www.athensinfoguide.com - Winter hours 8:30 - 15:00

Which one is correct?

Sunset time is 17:15

Another questions is if we will have enough time for a visit landing at 12:30 (from Cairo). (I will stay in Syntagma Square area and planning to drop our bags at the hotel and walk to the entrance).

Odysseus culture is correct, at the moment, as it showing the current summer hours, winter hours it usually closes at 3pm. This is the official site.

Don’t take too much from athensinfoguide site, while some basics remain the same much of it is years out of date, it was last updated around 2009.
