  • Heard and read too many negative reviews before visiting this part of Athens. Well those rumours of pimps and druggers are for sure a thing of the past. The authorities have ensured regular and frequent police patrols to support that. So Omonia is certainly as safe as any other city in the world. Head there and make sure you dig into some of the great bakeries in the area!
  • I don't suggest this area It Is the perfect down town Athens but really very danger place for tourists A lot of drugs and very dangerous people around Be very careful especially after 8pm I am in unpleasant way to declare that the legendary old Omonia square maybe one of the oldest square in the Greek capital is NOT the best place where you should visit!!! If you still want to go.... you are totally responsible for yourself and don't wait for police support There is no police around or if you see poluce (very rare) they just ignore the facts around So sorry for the disappointed review dear visitors
