Full description
London, Berlin, New York, or Paris normally come to mind when street art is mentioned. Athens, however, is often overlooked and yet is a city rich in graffiti art.

Street art emerged in the Greek capital around 1998. The art form really took off, developing its distinctive style over the past 10 years, particularly as the country’s economic crisis unfolded.

This 3-hour guided tour offers an alternative way to experience Athens and take a look at what’s happening at its core.

A vested interest in art isn’t required to enjoy this activity. All you need is curiosity and receptiveness to the fantasy, colors, and meanings of the works you encounter, as you look at Athens in a fresh and unconventional way.
Includes
  • English-speaking guide
  • Map of neighborhoods visited (with the locations of main street art creations indicated)
What’s Not Included
  • Gratuities (optional)
