Best Time to Visit
The best time to visit Greece is on the shoulder months of April-May (excluding the islands) and the end of August-November. A local expressed the best time in Greece is September when the ocean is warm and the crowds are gone! During the summer (June- August) is also nice, but extremely crowded. Crowds or not, Greece is still amazing!
Greece is generally safe for Solo Female travel. In Athens, I would recommend staying in town near the Acropolis. Greece is know 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 hold my DSLR, 3 lenses, my laptop and toiletries. It’s my favorite backpack that comes on all my travels!
