What you'll do

Forget the clichés about Greece and let’s immerse in an urban world, witness of the actual issues of the country and of an alternative way of living. This is Exarchia, a unique area in downtown Athens where leftist and anarchist movements meet, resisting to self-manage itself and promoting inclusion. No, this is not a ghetto, but a social melting pot. The walk will lead you into the core of the area, to understand what it is today and the actual issues and threats, through omnipresent street art, quiet pedestrian streets, activist banners and busy recreational squares. Want to discover other areas of Athens? Try Plaka and panoramic view of Athens (www.airbnb.com/experiences/780358) or Discover Piraeus (www.airbnb.com/experiences/837875) for an easy accessible escape to the seaside of Athens!

Clément

If I decided to be Athenian, it’s because I’m fascinated by this city! Its history, its ambiances, this singular lifestyle a real feeling of a mediterranean metropolis. My objective: show visitors yet authentic, unique or unknown places of this capital, too often overlooked or avoided!

Where you'll be

We will meet near the university to head to the area of Exarchia and dive into its atmosphere to wander into the quiet streets full of committed graffitis and around the impressive and highly symbolic Polytechnic School, hub of the anarchist movements.
