Fall in love again under the Greek August moon

The largest full moon of the year on Saturday, August 13 will be celebrated with theatrical performances and other cultural events to take place in 75 archaeological sites and museums across the country that will remain open for the public until the early morning hours. It is the perfect setting to fall in love again. 
More than 15,000 visitors descended on Athens’ iconic rock last year, causing both damage to the site and frustration over long waits and injuries due to slipping in the darkness and overcrowding. A pay dispute also garnered negative media attention, though it was eventually resolved.

The full moon festival in August is the only night of the year when everyone can enjoy monuments and free events after sundown, a tradition since 1996.
