This is not a tourist friendly place -- lots of pickpocketing and not so much happenings. Omonia Square has great architecture and so much to see ie on the cultural perspective but a lot of muggings and pickpockets abound here --- and the police are not very helpful.

Unfortunately this square is not great, always busy, drug addicts hang around here and you definetely don't want to be here at night. During the day it's fine, most Athenians use it to pass by to get to work etc

Omonia used to be a really vibrant place full of people having fun.Now,it seems more like an illegal market.Quite dangerous at night full of homeless people and drug addicts.At daytime it's not that bad.

this square is in the center of Athens. Can't think of any place of interest there. Should be avoided in the late hours.
