Santorini is one of Greece’s epic highlights, not only for their beauty but for their terrain as well. The white organic shaped houses and streets create a sick place for parkour. The island has a lot of places to perform dope tricks and work on your flow as a free runner, the organic shapes on this unique island allow you to work with terrain in a really playful way. Many free running competitions take place in Santorini for this reason, sick right? No wonder Santorini is that popular amongst urban athletes and mostly freerunners.

The title legendary spot is more than fitting for the ‘freerunning place to be: Santorini’. Where are the best spots at? Check CityLegends or read along.


Fira: parkour and hospitality

Fira is an absolute hotspot. It’s an epic location for bars, restaurants, Airbnb’s, hotels. That means a lot of public places to parkour. That’s why the course of Art Of Motion is located in Fira.
