Moonlight opening of the 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.
