WHAT TO EXPECT
We meet at 9:45 am at the Thisio metro station where we meet our guide and gain our first insights into the diverse street art scene of Greece’s capital.

We head off through Kerameikos, the ancient pottery quarter of Athens, to Gazi, the cultural heart of the metropolis. Here you will see how art and technology intermingle. In the centre of Gazi is an old gasworks which now houses numerous exhibitions and museums.

In this part of the city, we mainly find small apartment buildings that once belonged to the workers of the former coal-fired power plant, and which now have been converted into luxurious flats. The street art in this part of the city appears to be almost traditional in style.

The neighbouring district of Metaxourgio, the new hot spot for Athens street art, is a completely different experience. Here, all the artists’ creative energy is on display with plenty of space to exhibit their striking work.

During a coffee break, we have plenty of time to discuss all that we have seen with our guide and take a first look at the numerous photos taken on the first half of the tour.

Refreshed, we continue on to Psiri, the nightlife district of many Athenians and the original home of street art in Athens. The art we see here often bears a political and social significance. Our three-hour walk ends here with many exciting impressions and new insights into an Athens that are often missed by visitors to the city.
