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 in the anarchist district of Exarchia!
Experience available in English, French
What we’ll do
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.
Good to know
What do I need to bring: Appropriate shoes and clothes for several hours walk.
