Safety Guidelines and more

• In Greece most days in the year are warm and sunny! From April to July sunscreen is recommended, especially to people with light skin 

• If you are travelling in winter, even when the sun shines, you should wear warm clothes

• During your stay, you should follow strictly your physician’s instructions

• Before the trip, be sure that your medication (if any) is allowed in the country, so that you may not face any trouble at the airport 

• Generally, Athens is a safe city for visitors. For precautionary reasons, pay close attention to your personal belongings in the public transport and avoid underground pedestrian passages

• As foreign, make sure you have passport or ID card (or your visa if it is necessary for your entrance in the country) always with you, so you can prove your identity if needed (if stopped by police, boarding a plane, etc.).Driving licences, post, bank or tax cards are not accepted as valid travel documents or proof of identity

• In case you rent a car remember to drive on the right side of the road
