Meet your private tour guide at Monastiraki Metro Station and embark on a 3-hour walking tour of Athens’ street art-covered walls. Your tour guide is a local street artist themselves, and knows just where to take you to see the best of this ephemeral, public art form.
Wander through up-and-coming neighborhoods like Metaxourgeio, while learning about the history and origins of this underground, global phenomenon. As you go, your guide will teach you about the different styles, techniques, and terminology in the street art world, from stencils and paste-ups to tags, pieces, murals, installations, and wild-style graffiti.
The tour will also focus on the Greek street art scene in particular, and its various social and political inspirations. Uncover different artists’ political statements, and learn how the Greek economic crisis led to a flourishing public arts movement.
Multicolored, vibrant Athens is always changing, and its street art is no exception: many pieces last for only days or weeks on the walls, so every tour will uncover something a little bit different. Get ready to explore the city’s alternative side!
