Tsakonia, with the distinctive dialect that has its roots in the ancient Doric Greek, and the local labyrinthine shaped traditional dance, participates in the Fly me to the Moon programme and brings its own unique rhythm to the Athens International Airport. The audience will be initiated into the art of the loom, and will be treated to local tastes.
Visitors will craft hot air balloons and experience the Easter spirit by reviving this unique tradition from the picturesque town of Leonidio. The beautiful capital of Tsakonia, during the Resurrection night, offers a unique spectacle of sound and light created by the distinctive colours of the balloons in the night sky.
The airport’s "Fly me to the moon” this year “unfolds” the natural beauty of Greece, the cultural identity, the gastronomy, the customs, the traditions, and the special character of each region. Our passengers and visitors will be enjoying these “journeys”, together with local representatives, and the people of our country’s “guest of honour” regions.
"Fly me to the Moon"
is a joint cooperation between Athens International Airport and elculture cultural platform which takes place for sixth consecutive years. For more information please visit www.aia.gr
