Paris, France

The city of Love. The street art scene in Paris is well known for the great amount of Space Invaders, creations of the anonymous street artist, Invader. These little works made of mosaic can be found all over the city. Hint: the 13th arrondissement is definitely worth a visit for street art fans!

Rome, Italy

One of the oldest cities in the world and famous for the Colosseum, the ruins and the busy traffic. Every big city has street art, and Rome does not disappoint! Especially worth a visit are the neighbourhoods of San Lorenzo, Ostiense, Pigneto and Quadraro.

Barcelona, Spain

The city of Gaudi architecture, paella, and beautiful beaches. These things are probably what triggers many street artists to come to Barcelona! The streets of this city are packed with creative artwork.
