Transport in Greece?


I am from Mexico, and I will be 5 days in Athens. Since I prefer to walk and take the bus to know the cities , which I visit... I have a question, is Athens like Mexico city, where we have to pay attention to the times and areas to be save? Or I can walk everywhere anytime? Is there a week ticket or city card?

Thank you in advance!



Just do not go to Omonia area at night, and in tourist places there are many pick-pockets, only that. Greece is very safe! Enjoy!

Dear friend, I am Greek from Athens. There are few areas that you should avoid walking at square. Many drug addicts. Apart from that, Athens is generally safe.
Tickets cost 1,20e  but there areemontly passes too.Used to have weekly too but I dont know if they still have. You can also use the tram and the metro, they are more in time and metro is faster if you need cover long distance. For anything else, dont hesitate e mail me at xxx
