Full description
Dating back to the 1960s, street art is a movement that brings together all forms of art created in public places. Artists use diverse techniques such as stencils, graffiti and even bill posting. The art form can be found in European capitals such as Berlin, and it has been developing over the years in Paris, with supported from public authorities. In recent months, commuters on the Metro have been able to see several frescoes flourish along line 6. These creations have been carried out by groups or artists of international renown. On this 2-hour activity, an urban guide will invite you to discover the neighborhood’s frescoes on a walk from Place d'Italie to the banks of the River Seine. Keep your eyes on the sky! The willingness of public authorities and the interest of the mayor of the 13th arrondissement have led to the development of street art on the buildings in this area.

Very interesting course with a clear and passionate guide who sheds light on the understanding of the works. It is a pity that your GetYourGuide application did not notify us of the change of meeting point following the closure of the National station...!! Fortunately, our guide was able to catch up on this annoying oversight.

We hadn't noticed that the tour was in French but went anyway. Our guide Paul made every effort to explain the street art in English and was really helpful. He was also very knowledgeable on the artwork and artists. We found the street art amazing and well worth seeing. Would definately recommend this tour. A big thanks to Paul!
