Travel Risks in Greece

Most visits to Greece are trouble free, but theft of passports, wallets and handbags are common on the train and in crowded tourist places.

Make sure to keep an eye on your belongings, and keep your valuables in a safe in your hotel.

Beggars are common in Greece, but you will rarely come across a violent or aggressive beggar.

Avoid organised protests and demonstrations, as these can start out peaceful and end up turning violent.
