August Full Moon

The Culture Ministry will open 72 archaeological sites, monuments and museums all over the country on Saturday night, the night of the August Full Moon.

The development is taking place as part of efforts to familiarise the public with archaeological sites and with the country’s cultural heritage in general.

On August 16, the Acropolis will be open to the public from 19:00-01:30 and admission will be free. People visiting the Acropolis on this day must know that they are forbidden to carry food, drinks and musical instruments with them.
