Traveling Safety

Greece is generally safe for Solo Female travel. In Athens, I would recommend staying in town near the Acropolis.

Greece is known for pickpocketing, especially in crowded areas.

I recommend the LowePro 250 Camera backpack, which also can act as an anti-theft bag when the rain protecting cover on.

It holds my DSLR, 3 lenses, my laptop, and toiletries.  It’s my favorite backpack that comes on all my travels!

Water Safety

In major cities such as Athens, the water is considered safe to drink.

In smaller towns and islands bottled water is recommended. To reduce environmental impact, check out alternatives such as Steripen! I used my Lifestaw in Athens.
