"ATHENS is a fairly safe city...." Athens Warnings Or Dangers Tip by coast2coast

Athens Warnings and Dangers: 196 reviews and 109 photos

ATHENS is a fairly safe city. Despite some rough neigbourhoods and questionable looking characters, you are pretty safe, But- use common sense. Be watchful for pickpockets at the main bus station. Ditto for the Railway station. I heard you can get scammed by some Taxi drivers- so agree the fare before hand. Taxis are cheap however, so you are unlikely to be done for much.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
