Greece trip report: Rhodes, Karpathos and Athens . www.viajerosolidario.com. Travel forum, exchange of information about countries and citiesOtoo 2006.Church of MesohoriAt last, one of the beaches of Levkos appears before our eyes. It is a small village of scattered houses in the interior of a valley that ends in the coast, forming 3 beautiful beaches. Between the village and the beaches several dozens of houses have grown like mushrooms, whose rooms are rented in summer. At least for now they have not built next to the beaches. Together with Ammopi and Arkassa, where we will pass tomorrow, it is the closest thing to a hotel resort on the island. Nothing to do with other closer parts of the Mediterranean…Altar of one of the many hermitages that we find on the roads of KarpathosOracio Holiveira 2918 /
ATHENS: A much bigger city than I expected. Apart from the obligatory visits to the Acropolis and the temple of Zeus, I recommend a mini-excursion on Mount Likavitos, with great views of the whole city and the Acropolis…. In two hours of walking we hardly met anyone.
On the Acropolis there will be people, but as it is a very large area, it is far from overwhelming. In addition to the Parthenon and the other temples, you can walk around the whole hill, and going down are the Roman Forum and the temple of Ephesus, very nice and with very few people.
What I liked most was to walk and walk, without knowing exactly where, and find a column here, some stones there, a site in the same subway station … ancient remains in every corner.
AEGINA ISLAND: The closest island to Athens, you can go and return the same day. Very nice, very few people also. There is also a very big archaeological site (there were only us and another couple that was there, nobody else!!), with neolithic remains…. brutal. And the same, a little bit of beach and then just to walk around.

Safety Recommendations for Traveling to Greece. ⛔ Dangerous and safe areas for sightseeing or living in Greece ✅ Travel requirements and restrictions. ⚠️ Is it dangerous or safe to travel to Greece [Current information].
As in other European capitals, in Athens there are some neighborhoods, and in particular the area adjacent to Omonia and Metaxourgio squares, where it is not advisable to enter after sunset.
The following requirements for entry into Greece apply to all travelers regardless of vaccination status, the means of transportation used to enter Greece, as well as to travelers who are merely transiting Greece by air.
If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive and you have received the booster vaccination dose, then you are not obliged to self-isolate, but you must undergo a PCR or rapid test on the fifth day after the contact. If you are not vaccinated or are vaccinated but have not received the booster dose, you must undergo a PCR or rapid test and self-isolate for 5 days.

What are the requirements to travel to Greece now? Do I need a PCR or is the vaccination certificate enough? It is normal that you ask yourself these questions, since we are in a time of many changes. Fortunately, the Hellenic country is one of the destinations where you can travel now. At IATI Insurance, as lovers of Greece, we are going to tell you everything you need to know so that you can plan your adventure and discover beautiful landscapes and corners with centuries of history.
It is expected that from May 1, 2022, all these restrictions will disappear. The use of face masks indoors will only be mandatory in certain limited cases. Greece wants to boost tourism at all costs this summer, so if you decide to visit, you will find an almost normal climate.
As we told you in Is it safe to travel to Greece, you should always drive with caution, but we advise you to be much more cautious in Greece. Forced overtaking is not uncommon and many drivers expect you to pull straight onto the shoulder so that they can overtake you. In addition, most of the roads are not in good condition.
