Unlike the rest of the world, the August full moon in Athens has no association with… werewolves. It's actually the best time to visit the European cultural capital.
This is the only night when over a hundred of the city's historical landmarks, archaeological sites, and museums offer free admission, and many become the venues for concerts, plays, and other performances.
The highlights include musical performances at the Acropolis Museum, concerts in Elefsina, exhibitions in the Archaeological Museum of Athens, and entertainment on the Filopappou Hill.
The Acropolis is especially stunning in the moonlight!
Don’t miss it!
