Carnival (February)

If you happen to be in Athens during February you will enjoy carnival events that will add significantly to your entertainment!

Carnival in Greece takes place three weeks before the Lent. For about ten days (2 weeks) the Athenians do their best to offer an exciting carnival atmosphere to the city. Masked balls in the streets and in the shops, especially at Plaka, will draw your attention and will offer you unique carnival experiences. During the last years, the Carnival of Moshato with the parades of impressive groups and floats has become very popular.
