Follow us on an alternative walking tour focusing on the exploration of the street art movement existing in the city-center of Athens, a mecca of street artists from around the world. Discover neighborhoods and historical spots of the city at non-touristy locations, experience the local culture and get to know how modern street art interacts and develops with historical buildings of the city and ultimately reflects modern Greek culture.  

  • Our Athens Street Art Tour is the perfect way to explore the secrets behind the Athenian graffiti scene with an expert local guide that will introduce you to the Athenian street art culture and guide you through the most alternative, non-touristy neighborhoods of the city.
  • Explore fascinating spots of historical interest that shaped modern Greek identity.
  • Admire amazing mural art by iNO, WD, and other well-known street artists.
  • Understand how street art reflects the social and political statements of modern Greek society and how it integrates into the city.

What you can expect?

Through a 3-hour private tour led by an expert on the subject, enthusiastic local guide, you will learn the history & origins of this underground global phenomenon and how it operates in Athens. Dig deeper into the “secret codes” of street artists as you enjoy an alternative tour in Athens centre. Together you will wander around small streets of up and coming neighbourhoods in Athens while discussing their interesting history and the reasons why street art has flourished on their walls.

You are going to focus on the social and political aspects of the Greek street art scene. What political statements are the artists making and why? How the economic crisis urged people to express themselves on the streets?

Graffiti changes rapidly in the streets of Athens which is turning into a big contemporary art gallery -if you know where to look! Athens is a multicoloured city and if you are keen on exploring her in an alternative way and experiencing her local culture & pieces of modern history, this walking tour is perfect for you.

Some of the spots you are going to visit:

Psirri

One of the most lively neighbourhoods of the historical centre of Athens, Psirri is a must-see spot during your stay in the city of Athens. Named after the tiny island of Psarra, the neighbourhood was always a commercial centre for the Athenians and remains so up until today. Many famous personalities chose to live there such as Lord Byron, or the famous Greek author Alexandros Papadiamantis. After the 1990's, the neighbourhood got massively gentrified and still is the place where locals prefer to go and relax, spend some time at a nice taverna or have a drink at a local bar. Do not miss your chance to explore Psirri and get to know the local side of the city!

Reviews

  • The Athens Street Art tour took us to parts of Athens we would otherwise never have seen, and the guide knew all about the official and unofficial street art. Some of it is really amazing - other parts are graffiti. We were glad we had taken this tour. The company, Greeking.me is excellent and helpful - do try them.

  • Our guide Marialena took us on a great walking tour into areas we would not have been able to find for ourselves as well as some of the better known murals. Not only was she knowledgeable but her delightful and warm personality made our tour particularly enjoyable. She mixed a lot of history and cultural information into her talk and we learned a lot!

  • We had a wonderful private street art with Theo. He was so knowledgeable and it was really interesting hearing some historical facts from him. The street art was a big highlight for me. I was really moved by a few of the pieces we were shown on the tour, so thank you for catering us and our little family. Big thanks to Theo for being such an excellent, informative guide. Would love to have more time one day to explore Athens with another of your guides.
