Published: Wed Jul 06 2011

Night of the Full Moon will see major landmarks such as Odeion of Herodes Atticus and the Acropolis opening for free to allow people to explore the ancient architecture under the moonlight. August is chosen as the month to host the event as this is when the moon is brightest all year and creates a dramatic effect against the impressive structures.

Not only in Athens will the evening take place but museums and many of the country’s prestigious archaeological sites will be joining in to offer free access for the night.

Along with the free entry a variety of performances will be happening for free too. Actors will be commanding the ancient stages to perform classical Greek plays and opera fans can see and hear different concerts under the stars. More contemporary acts will also be adding to the schedule with dance and music to ensure the event offers something for all tastes.

Visitors are being warned that because the evening is so popular people are likely to find that searching for a hotel Athens for the night will become more difficult as more people come to make the most of the offer.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: "This is the one chance that people can see so many attractions for nothing and accommodation is much more scarce so early bookings are needed."
