Art on the street. Athens, Greece. Part II

Street art by INO, Athens, Greece. Wander Women blog

About one and a half years ago Anneloes visited Athens, the capital of Greece. She wrote a few posts about her adventures in the capital and one was about the most beautiful street art she encountered on her walks. I just got back from an 8 day trip to Athens and it’s surrondings and I also looked around when I was wandering trough this amazing city. Funny enough I found completely different murals from Anneloes. Athens has so much street art. A lot of it was commissioned, mostly before the Olympics of 2004.

Street art in Athens (Greece)

Only 2 months ago, my mom and I were exploring Athens (Greece), and we loved this city! Through AirBnB we rented an apartment in a quarter of Athens which felt a bit like downtown Athens. An area with lots of  high flats, many inhabitants, not so green (hardly any trees and parks), lots of traffic and a lot of graffiti. I mean A LOT of graffiti, really. There’s no turning a corner without seeing any street art. I love sharing our favourites with you.

Vintage in Athens, Greece? I had no clue Athens (the capital of Greece) has so much to offer. 5 days wasn’t enough to see and do everything that was on my list. While preparing for this trip and searching online for useful info about Athens, I didn’t look for vintage clothing stores though, because I just assumed there weren’t any in this city. Imagine my surprise when my mom and I bumped into the Concept Store Art & Industry, I couldn’t resist checking it out!
