A total of 140 events across dozens of archaeological sites, museums and main attractions in Greece, from Athens’ Temple of Olympian Zeus and Cape Sounion to the Theopetra Caves, the castle town of Mystras and the once sacred island of Delos, will welcome the full moon on August 29 in true romantic fashion.
Concerts, theater performances, art shows, tours, film screenings and shadow puppet theater are just some of the events to take place on the night of the full moon with admission to all sites free of charge.
This year, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion will also be open. The Acropolis site will close its doors at 8pm for safety reasons due to works being carried out.
In the meantime, the Acropolis Museum will celebrate the full moon on August 29, with “Tango Acropolis”, to be held in the museum courtyard. Internationally acclaimed dancers and musicians will stage a performance inspired by the tango. At the end of the show, the public will have the opportunity to dance.
The event is under the auspices of the Embassy of Argentina in collaboration with the Acropolis Museum. Admission will be free after 8pm.
