Omonia Square is a bustling city centre square with traffic and pedestrians coming from all directions. I can see why there may be some negative comments on here about Omonia, but I felt safe in the area. Just remain vigilant and don't go flashing your...More

We stayed at a hotel one block away from the square itself, so basically in the Omonia neighborhood. The hotel was situated right next to the police station. This means that we past through Omonia daily both during the day and during the night (sometimes...More

Our hotel was exactly on this square, the square has quite a bad reputation but not as bad as some place in Paris for example. A lot of cars passing this square, just watch out when crossing the road, all the rest will be fine.

A great place to meet the “new Europeans” and experience their culture up close Many people here, especially single males from Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Middle East and Africa involved in more fringe distributive or service trades.

Omonia seems to have a "troublesome" image on here yet having been there yesterday I cannot understand it. The square itself is just another big square in the city. There does not appear to be any huge significance and there are the odd cafes and...More

This was one of many squares I visited in the city. It was not one of the most picturesque, compared to many of the others..

I find many of these reviews quite troubling. First, why are "immigrants" considered as such a negative? Second, have people not been reading the news? Greece is the entry point to Europe for war-torn countries to the East, because the rest of the world has...More

Obviously it is not about the square itself, but I wanted to share my experience how my wallet got stolen, hopefully it can help to recognise risky situations for others. We were in a bigger group trying to get off at Omonia from M2 but...More

I wanted to see the Acropolis so I booked a short trip to Athens. Big mistake. It's true Athens does have more than its fair share of ruined buildings. The truth is most of them are not that old! Omonia Sq. You come up escalator...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
