"Traffic" Athens Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Heniko

Athens Warnings and Dangers: 196 reviews and 109 photos


It seems in Greece that you are not really required to obey the lights and signs, but they are merely a suggestion few think they need to take. Scooters and autos speeding by you at speeds I think is not normal for a inner city...as if they were on the Autobahn.

While trying to walk from one side of the road where our hotel was to the other side, to the beach...seems dangerously hazardous to our health...took about 2O mintues.

Wow..I advise anyone, who is not familir with Athens and the traffic...take the metro or walk....
