What to Expect
Abandon the notion of art as you know it with the Athens street art walking tour and enter a world where every spray-painted surface is nothing less than a cry for help. Take a closer look at murals depicting the Greek financial crisis, or the bloody riots that took place in the city centre, and people’s feelings about politicians and modern-day social situations. Gaze at the urban approach of ancient Greek gods and philosophers and explore both local and foreign artists with their own distinctive style. Tour around Athens through its street art showing skilful, creative, yet sometimes indecipherable images of personal opinions and beliefs. Follow your local guide into the streets of the alternative city side, observe famous artworks like the Owl of Athens and the Riot Dog, and unearth the counterculture art.
