Almost a year to the date since its first and very successful trial debut, terror returns to the city of Athens!

Athens is known for its cultural events. The city that gave birth to theater offers today a large variety of performances, ranging from text-based drama to physical theater, site specific performances and productions of international caliber. Cultured evenings featuring performing arts, cinema, ancient Greek tragedies and comedies can be enjoyed in open air venues, under the stars of the Athenian sky during the warm months. A unique experience is a performance or a concert held at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus at the foot of the illuminated Acropolis.
Summer in Athens is no doubt one of the most exciting times of the year. The mood of the summer vacation dominates every day and every night. The outdoor restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs that line the Mediterranean are tropical paradises built directly on the seacoast. Top DJs at these venues spin the hottest beats and top chefs mix the healthiest ingredients. The town is abuzz.
