Greece was the scene of riots and subjected to harsh austerity measures. “Making the end of Greece” was the nightmare of all countries affected by the crisis and think that until recently the same sentence could be an omen: a land of culture, the cradle of civilization, a destination for tourism and happy oasis.
The fear seems absolutely groundless, however, safety is ensured for tourists if you think that Greece has always been a very safe country to visit, so that in many of the islands people are not even close the doors, the Greek culture presents many traits common to our southern culture. As in Italy, the United Kingdom, Spain, Europe and other countries in the world, tourists may be affected by transport strikes, which in most cases are known in advance, or archaeological sites. If you are unlucky it is important to provide a different travel plan, reorganizing without getting caught by anxiety: the Greek people is, as always, proud to welcome visitors and help tourists to spend a good holiday, advising them on how to avoid any problems.
Above all, the riots have absolutely involved the irresponsibility of the media to portray Greece and the islands as a whole that has created fear and confusion among the public.
Greece is therefore not only a safe place to visit but also a great value for money. The island of Santorini in particular is a quiet, without any risks or hazards to report. For the Greek islands tourists need to understand that wars and revolutions do not touch this place of peace … Come and visit us!
