August full moon in Athens

An experience for all of those who are in Greece during summer. For some, visiting Athens for the full moon is a must, but the lucky ones are also those who are everywhere around the country, since the Ministry of Culture celebrates with events. If you are near Acropolis, a place to be around is Pikionis Pathway around Filopappou hill.
