Athens Lykavitos (Lycabettus) Hill, Chapel of Agios Georgios at sunset Tonight is the full moon in Athens, Greece, when by tradition everyone attends free events till late on the archeological sites; and this year there's also a partial lunar eclipse over the city. But for this feral kitten, silently padding the very highest point of Athens in search of scraps from restaurant diners atop Lycabettus Hill, it will be business as usual.

Every year since 1953, the August Moon Festival in Athens on the night of the full moon - believed to be the most beautiful such event of the year - has been a celebration open to everyone, with free performances of opera, traditional dance and classical music on the Acropolis and Roman Agora, as well as events located in other unique and incomparable historic sites of Athens such as the Odeion of Herodus Attikus .

This is truly an occasion, if you are in Athens at the right time, not to be missed! (And if you're somewhere else in Greece, you may still be lucky anyway - consult the Greek Ministry of Culture for possible events in other locations.)
