2. Berlin, Germany - "The East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall is a must-see, and you'll find tons just wandering around the neighborhood Kreuzberg.

3. Bogota, Colombia - "I recommend the La Candelaria district in Bogota for some Colombian street art. It is the historic part of the city so the art on the old architecture is awesome. For an inexpensive place to stay, you could try Casa Platypus." From Trippy member Michael Emmanuel if Chicago, Illinois

4. Lisbon, Portugal - "Personally loved Lisbon for its street art and graffiti - check out theGaleria de Arta Urbana (wall of street art graffiti) where you can see the latest pieces by the city's most beloved street artists. Make sure to also snap a photo by the graffiti-covered yellow trams, a favorite among visiting tourists." From Trippy member Alisha Miranda of New York, New York

10. Athens, Greece - "Maybe not the best - but certainly mentionable is Athens, particularly Monastiraki I wish I had more to say about it except that you'll find huge building-sized murals on every corner.
