DURATION: 3.5 hours
If you are keen on street art and you wish to explore Exarcheia neighbourhood this is the almost free tour for you. By this walk, you will learn about the history and local stories of Exarchia combined with some amazing street art work. Starting from the early 19th century till nowadays you will find out how this neighbourhood became the heartbeat of political and social resistance.
Exarcheia is a vivid, artsy and authentic neighborhood with a lots of young people meeting and gathering here. Neoclassical buildings with wrought iron balconies host a plague of graffiti. Tags from the inane to the profane mark each and every wall – a reminder of the area’s antiestablishment ties from years ago. Today, however, this central neighbourhood is a cultural must visit in Athens. With a distinctly different vibe to any other part of town, Exarcheia has retained its old world Greek charm while welcoming in a new artistic crowd.
What is amazing about this neighborhood apart from nightlife and street food, is street art. It's like an open gallery of street art. You will see many street artists that are known worldwide. My personal challenge for you is to be able to recognize some techniques and some street artists at the end of the tour.
This is an almost FREE tour – sponsored by the City of Athens and guided by a certified student guide, and a donation of $5 is appreciated.
I will wait for you in the stairs of Old National Library!
