Young and old get into the festive spirit at Zappeio Hall

Children, and some parents, enjoy a ride at a fun fair set up outside Zappeio Hall in central Athens yesterday.

Festive attractions have been set up at other squares across the capital with ice skating at Kotzia and Shetland pony rides at Syntagma.
