Moonlight opening of the Acropolis

Posted at 12:46 pm in Acropolis

In recent years, a number of Greek Archaeological sites, most notably the Acropolis have opened late on the nights of full moons in the summer. This gives visitors to see the sites from a completely different perspective to how they appear during the day, made more unique by the limited number of times that it is possible to do this.

The sites that will be open until 1 a.m. include the Acropolis, Sounion, Kerameikos, Ancient Olympia and Delphi, the ministry said.
