Full description
Meet your guide, a member of the Be a Greek team, outside the Thiseio Metro Station. From here you will enjoy a 5-hour walking tour in the most alternative and authentic neighborhoods of Athens and get acquainted with the Athenian street art scene. Browse some of Athens' best-known districts such as Thissio, Psyrri and Exarchia and discover their unique character through the murals, stencils and graffiti that decorate them.

Begin from the Thiseio pedestrian area below the Temple of Hephaestus, admiring the contrast between the ancient exhibits of Kerameikos and the contemporary artworks of the area. Here discover one of the works of the famous iNO. Continue to Gazi encountering both its touristic and its alternative character. In this part of the walk enjoy the opportunity to talk, among other things, about the amazing artist STMTS and get to know some of his unique works. Leaving behind Gazi cross Kerameikos, undoubtedly one of the most picturesque areas of the capital, which has retained the image of old Athens unchanged.

Explore Exarchia, a well-known neighborhood for its artistic and student aura. Exclusive street artists such as WD, Achilles, Sonke and iNO have given a special touch to the urban landscape, highlighting these neighborhoods and making them famous all around the world. Relax while enjoying coffee in a local cafe decorated with unique anamorphic graffiti. Complete the tour in the Psyrri area after admiring some of the most famous and beautiful works of art such as the dog Loukanikos (Sausage in Greek), with its contemporary socio-political message. End the tour at Monastiraki.
