I am an Asian American young female, and I am planning to go to Athens and Santorini in March. I will be going with my young Black English friend. With the financial crisis, I heard that non-white people are more likely to be victimized now (due to blaming immigrants and foreigners). How safe would it be for us to visit at this time?
We will be staying near the acropolis area (within 2 blocks of the acropolis museum). If we go out to clubs and bars at night, would that be dangerous for us? Would it be unsafe for us to walk around at night? Would we be likely sexually assaulted?
I have heard that crime was rising in Athens, but was still relatively low. How would the crime compare to US cities like Los Angeles or Chicago?
