Full moon events

The August
full moon is
the biggest of
the year and Athenians
celebrate it accordingly.
This year, the full moon
is on Saturday 16th. On
this night, the Ministry of
Culture opens up many
archaeological sites so
that everyone can enjoy
the full moon. Even if
romance is the last thing
on your mind, the idea
of admiring antiquities
under the starlit sky is
unbeatable. As expected,
the place where people
are dying to enter is the
Acropolis Hill, where
the sight of the floodlit
Parthenon against a giant
bright moon is a major
crowd-puller. Others opt
for the serene Temple
of Poseidon in Sounio,
which is also a big hit,
as well as the ancient
Keramikos cemetery.
