Athens has one of the lowest crime rates for capital cities in the world
According to the statistics, Athens is one of the safest cities in Europe and perhaps even the world. Violent crimes are not a big problem in the city and the only thing you might need to worry about are the petty crimes such as pickpockets in crowded metro areas. This is not to say that serious crime doesn’t exist in Athens, but compared to other capital cities around the world, it is quite safe.
