Athens was made for strolling, as you'll find out in this itinerary. The neighborhoods of Monastiraki, Syntagma, Plaka, and Makrygianni hide petite pedestrian streets and neoclassical homes overflowing with floral balconies. You'll see street art with an artist, be schooled by a chef, and take a sunset visit to the Temple of Poseidon. Step back into history with day trips to Delphi and Mycenae before departing.
Your local street artist will show you some of the most interesting pieces in unusual places. Some neighborhoods support and showcase art more than others, but each district has its own style. You'll experience everything from authentic grit in abandoned industrial spaces to formal techniques in exhibition centers. Your guide will help you understand how each artist and each piece relates to Athens' current social and economic situation.
