Any dangerous or seedy neighborhoods not to book hotels in Athens?

by travelnut71

Hi.

Like every city in the world they all have some seedy or dangerous neighborhood. Can anyone point out which I should avoid in Athens? I have 2 babies so...

Thanks!

I don't think there are any 'dangerous' neighbourhoods in the sense you mean, and especially not in the historical centre of Athens. I preferred not to base myself in Omonia, which is extremely busy with traffic and people and home to various strip-clubs etc. Around Syndagma or in Plaka would be good bases with children, I think.

Stay away from Omonia.

Syntagma and Plaka are nice, and take the kids to the beaches with the tram from Syntagma.

Yes, that's a nice tram ride. :-)

I live in Athens and I would never take my babies to Omonia Square, especially not after darkfall. It's not dangerous as someone might think, but it's neither a good image for the kids (it's depressing with some drug addicts here and there and much much traffic) nor something you will miss as an adult traveller. The rest of the city is pretty much fine. I agree with the others, Syntagma, Plaka and Monastiraki are nice places to walk with a stroller.

Syntagma and Plaka are the touristy sections of town and you will feel completely safe in these locations. I even walked through Omonia a couple of times and even there, I felt no threats. Athens seems like a safe city overall, for the 4 days I spent there last year in May.

I think it might be useful to clarify 'dangerous'.

Omonia has strip clubs, 'iffy' bars, more streetpeople, lots and lots of traffic and fumes and grubbiness. It thus feels more 'dangerous', simply because one perceives the threat of pickpocketing/petty theft/hassle to be higher. The chances of anything worse are minimal...we are not talking mugging at gunpoint here.

With children, the traffic and the fumes (they are at fume-level in strollers) would put me off Omonia. As a single female, it's not somewhere I'd feel comfortable walking around after dark in the late eveving/night.

But it is not actively 'dangerous' in the way some areas of cities can be (I'm told).

Travel Tips for Athens

Acropolis ticket

Acropolis - one of the most...

by denise_BG

Acropolis - one of the most visited places in the world. And again - it could be very disappointing as well. First - you should choose the appropriate time to visit it. Summer is not the best time - extremely hot and crowded. I had the most pleasant time when I came down from the Acropolis and I had a 'souvlaki' and a 'greek salad' in a restaurant in Plaka area which is surrounding the hill with the Acropolis on its top.

Visit the Acropolis. Don't...

by khalloud

Visit the Acropolis. Don't forget to enter the Museum there as well. Stuff in there helps you visualize the structures outside in all their glory! BEING at the Acropolis and checking out the entire city from up high

Athens' southern suburbs

by Lilasel

Athens' southern suburbs extend from the end of Syngrou Avenue, at Paleo Faliro, all the way to Vouliagmeni.

The area is mostly residential and it varies from the densely built suburb of Paleo Faliro to the luxury apartment blocks and single family homes of Voula and Vouliagmeni. These two are some of the most expensive real estate markets in the capital, due to their proximity with the sea and their great sunset views.

The main attractions of this area of Athens are the shopping and nightclubs of Glyfada, and the beaches.

The beaches of the southern suburbs extend from Alimos to Vouliagmeni, with a number of fee-paying, organized areas, offering a full menu of amenities and services, and a lot of coves where many area people choose to spend hot summer afternoons.

The southern suburbs host the entire city's nighlife in the summer months. Dozens of restaurants, bars, and clubs are built by the coast, with great sea views and whiffs of merciful breeze after another one of Athens' stifling hot summer days. Traffic to the southern suburbs can be awful, especially in the summer, after 11 pm, when the whole city seems to be in Voula and Glyfada in the coastal bars and clubs.

Kolonaki gal.

by Guantanamera

Pictured here, one of the adorable and gorgeous Greek women that you will often see on the streets of upscale Kolonaki... Looking sexy and pouty... With golden highlights in her hair -- that trend is very popular in Greece with women who want to set themselves apart from the rest...
