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.

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.

Walk with Clemént fully met the expectations. He shares his knowledge of modern Greek history, ongoing social processes and hidden life of the neighbourhood so you can learn how real Athenians live nowadays. He’s also sincerely friendly and makes you feel at ease from the first minutes of meeting. Recommended!

If you’re interested in street art and the neighborhood of Exarchia, this is a must do tour. You’ll see all the major and most famous street art of the neighborhood and learn the importance behind the art, as well as a lot of history of the neighborhood. The guide is very warm and friendly and will make you feel very welcome ☺️! Thanks so much for a wonderful insight into one of my new favorite parts of Athens.

Clément was an excellent guide for the Exarchia Tour. He knew a lot of the political background and explained the situation in that area. We learned a lot. There were loads of information you could not look up in a book, someone has to know that stuff. Clément did. He gave us a good insight to the alternative Exarchia Scene. Thanks a lot!
