Monday March 10 is Clean Monday, the day that Greeks of all ages traditionally head for the parks, beaches and hills with a kite and a picnic. Why not join in the fun? And of course, don’t forget to get yourself a kite, they’ll be for sale everywhere and head for the hill – Philopappou Hill, that is! Not only will you be rewarded with a marvelous view, the city of Athens also has some bonuses in store for everyone who ventures up the hill to fly a kite.
