Athens Street Art

I have to admit, I knew very little about Athens before my recent trip. Having studied Classical Civilisation, I could tell you something the city’s ancient past but not much else. I hadn’t expected the reams of street art, decorating the streets, particularly in the area of Psirri, where we were staying. But it wasn’t just there, as we explored the streets of Athens, we not only stumbled across an array of majestic archeological sites but some more recent artistic masterpieces as well.

When The Flatmate and I first moved to London, we tried to do something cultural each weekend, whether it would be checking out a museum or a market. After a while, however, that slowed down. Instead of exploring we’d catch up with friends, eat as much food as we could get our hands on or just stay in and watch Netflix for two days. Since it had been a while, we figured that this weekend we’d try to resurrect our cultural days.
