Athens Original Street Art Tour

1. Athens Original Street Art Tour

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.

Christina did an excellent job of keeping track of time and the needs of those in her charge. She spent a bit of time with us alone when others decided they needed to depart the tour. I Highly Recommend the Instagram Tour of Athens. Be ready to walk a couple of miles and climb a bunch of steps. It is Athens after all.

More than just a walk to view Street Art. This was a bit of Greek history, graffiti history, and sharing of opinion on the good and not so good of the range between art and vandalism. Great visual and educational experience.

Found lots of place for good photos, Pascal was happy to take photos with amazing backdrops Really enjoyed it!

An interesting trip with a great guide. Discover Athens in a different and special way

Nicos was very kind, patient, knowledgable and large with us. Thanks!
