REVIEW & TIPS: Prepare you sturdy legs as this will be series of walk. Have a bottle of water handy to keep you hydrated. Start early so you can see more of these artworks by the end of the day. You will find a long line of tourists waiting for their turn to have a photo shoot with every mural, so be patient to wait for yours. A map will be your bestfriend for this street art tour, make sure you have one. Trace street art locations with your map so you can plan your start and end point.
