Hello everyone! I am Magda, I am a biomedical scientist and I like to travel and meet new people all around the globe. When there is no time for traveling, I try to be a kind of traveler in my own city. Many of us know the fact "Tourist in my own city". Well I am one of those "weird" persons. Well what else you should know about me is that on my free time I like playing my guitar, listening music, wandering in Athens, seeking new street art masterpieces, discovering new hidden places and panoramic viewpoints, dancing and taking shots of urban life. Let me think what else? Oh yes, I am a nature lover as much as an urban lover too. Let me show you my beautiful city and all the hidden gems that only locals (and sometimes not even all locals) know.. Lets be athenian travellers... Come, see and enjoy... l

Welcome to the home of "urban resistance".

If you are keen on street art and you wish to explore Exarcheia neighbourhood this is the guruwalk for you. By this walk, you will learn about the history and local stories of Exarchia combined with some amazing street art work. Starting from the early 19th century till nowadays you will find out how this neighbourhood became the heartbeat of political and social resistance.

*Anyone can join. The guruwalk is based on tips - donations, so I leave it upon you.

*Please reserve your seat on time because small groups of people work better in this busy neighbourhood.

* The tour is estimated to be 2 hours and we are going to walk through the neighbourhood, so wear comfortable shoes!

*No food or drinking is included in tour.

Well, now let me give you some background info about the area we are going to visit.

Exarcheia is a vivid, artsy and authentic neighborhood with a lots of young people meeting and gathering here.

Many people know that area because of its bad reputation of the anarchists, but I guarantee that is really safe to walk here and it worths to. Furthermore what is amazing about this neighborhood apart from history, nightlife and street food, is street art. It's like an open gallery of street art. You will see many street artists that are known worldwide. My personal challenge for you is to be able to recognise some techniques and some street artists at the end of the tour.
