The summer season is in full swing but the month of August also marks the close of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival and the start of summer holidays for locals. Museums and archaeological sites are open throughout August although the events calendar takes a break in the weeks leading up to and following the traditional August 15 religious holiday.
A full cultural agenda of events start again from the very end of August and continue throughout September and October where the city’s fabulous open-air theatres take centre stage with world-class music and drama.
The following performances in late August, September and October have been approved by the Ministry of Culture for the Autumn programme at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
