Greece is generally very safe for groups of women and for solo female travelers. Greek people are friendly and helpful, certainly used to foreign visitors. Greek men can be more forward than in Western countries, expressive and admiring of women. If you find yourselves receiving some attention you don’t want, you can politely indicate your lack of interest and they will apologize and leave. Violent crime and theft rates are very low; public disorder is rare, and public drunkenness is generally frowned upon. You should rest assured that this is a safe and friendly destination, but it is always advisable to exercise basic precautionary measures just as you would do at home. It is not advised to venture out late at night on your own, especially in poorly lit areas with no people. You should also keep an eye for pickpockets, who in particular seem to remain active at popular tourist sites and on public transportation systems. Athens metro railway system provides its own guards that move around the trains ensuring the safe movement of citizens. Take full advantage of the guidance that our qualified travel agents will be more than delighted to offer you concerning some areas of some destinations that are supposed to be more dangerous either late at night, for example Omonoia square in Athens, or during high tourist season due to uncontrollable tourism, for example Laganas area on the island of Zakynthos.
