Greece

We’ve reviewed our travel advice for Greece. We haven’t changed the level, exercise normal safety precautions. Heatwaves are becoming more frequent. Drink plenty of water, wear light clothing, stay in air conditioned buildings or shaded areas, and follow the advice of local authorities. Wildfires can start quickly in the summer months with little warning. Monitor local media for updates. Petty crime and theft are serious issues in tourist areas and on buses and trains. Pickpocketing, bag snatching, and slashing luggage to steal belongings are common, particularly over the summer. Pay close attention to your belongings, particularly your passport, bank cards and phone.

We advise:
