Is greece safe to travel alone

Requirements to travel to greece from spain covid


If you are considering where to travel to Europe now, you are in luck because Greece is one of the countries with its borders open to tourism and without pandemic-related requirements as of May 1, 2022.

As you can see, it is quite safe to travel to Greece and, moreover, you will find a climate of relative normality, as well as a tourism industry with decades of experience and prepared for these unique times.

Don’t want to wait for anyone else to join you or do you love to travel solo? No need to wait any longer! Traveling alone to Greece is safe and will be an experience you will never forget. Just follow the precautions you would have at home and avoid lonely places and the depressed neighborhoods we told you about a few lines above after sunset.

Remember that, due to the current situation, travel documents and requirements may change. At IATI we are constantly updating this information. However, we recommend always checking with official sources.

Greece is a safe country. You have to be careful with pickpockets in big cities, on crowded beaches and cab drivers who may want to rip you off but, apart from that, there is nothing else to be afraid of. If you are traveling alone, it is probably one of the quietest European countries in that respect.

I traveled to Greece in 2007 through a ten-day package tour. We discovered Athens (at the beginning of its economic crisis), passed by the Greek theater of Epidaurus, the Corinth Canal, the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sunion and visited Olympia (where the first Olympics were held in Greece) and Delphi (with its mysterious temple of the oracle). A perfect trip for lovers of ancient history.

Due to the financial instability of the country, trains in Greece are very precarious and the state railway network is mainly based on the Athens-Alexandropolis (via Thessaloniki) and the Peloponnese network.

As in the case of Egypt, I think the best thing about Greece is its impressive history and for that reason, it is another of the few organized trips I have taken. To discover all the history of Ancient Greece, it is more appropriate to do it with guides and transportation in Greece, despite being a very touristy place, is still somewhat precarious.

It often happens that we see a movie and we get caught up in its beautiful scenery. Some time ago we told you about some movies that inspire you to travel, but in that list we did not include the movie Mamma Mia! Neither movie one nor movie two. You may wonder why?  Because without a doubt it is a country that deserves a special blog.

I arrived in Athens quite tired from the congress, as soon as I got off the plane I found a Free Walking Tour and I thought: how many times am I going to be in Greece. Away tiredness! Out!  I went to the hostel, left my things and walked to the meeting point with the tour group. About the walk I can’t tell you every detail, just tell you that the history of ancient Greece is as amazing as it appears in the movies. The ruins built to perfection make us wonder how they did it when there were no machines!!!! Everything so perfect, detail after detail.  On the tour I heard that several travelers had been to Mykonos or Santorini so as soon as I left the tour I decided to research on the internet how to travel to those islands so well known by all for those white buildings with blue roofs, for those sunsets, for the crystal clear waters.  And so it was that the next day I was already on the ferry traveling to Mykonos.

Greece insecurity

I am writing this series of articles two months after I came out of the silent retreat. So there are certain things that, even if I try to describe them now, I don’t feel the same as I did at the time, and my descriptions are not appropriate.

eople get scared and don’t know how to react, they feel uncomfortable if you cry in front of them. That’s why I went for a walk, alone. I dipped my feet in the salty water and watched how the sea urchins felt my presence.

I watched and watched. I hadn’t spoken or had any physical contact with anyone for ten long days and it was beyond me. I did not want to think. I didn’t want to talk (especially not in English, which was not my language). I wanted to be quiet again. Maybe I was not ready to go out, so quickly, “to the outside world”. It was hard for me to think that I had not made the right decision. I wanted to go home (like on the 1st and 2nd days of meditation at Dhamma Neru) and be able to hug my brother.

I wanted to embrace my brother. I immersed myself in the sea and my mind calmed down, finally. I could control how I felt and I did. I ate delicious Greek food for dinner and slept soundly. Everything passes and everything is impermanent and, precisely because of that,
