So, tomorrow it’s -probably- the most impressive Full Moon of the year. Many archaeological sites of Athens will remain open until midnight, and there are music and poetry events around the city.

The Acropolis Museum celebrates August Full Moon on Friday 12 August 2022 with Greek songs about the moon, film music and famous melodies from abroad, performed by the historic Hellenic Air Force Band, in the Museum’s entrance courtyard at 9 p.m. On this occasion, the Museum will remain open from 8 a.m. to 12 midnight with free entry for all visitors from 9 p.m. onwards, giving visitors the opportunity to stroll through the galleries and enjoy the view of the Acropolis under the charming moonlight.

And if you want to feel even more local, a really… known secret spot that many athenians prefer to hang out these nights is Vrachakia in Hill of Muses in Philopapos hill. So, grab some beers or other drinks, and start hike on the afternoon so as to enjoy also the athenian sunset.
