It is the oldest square in Athens, however, today it is not really pleasant to visit. It seems to be a gathering point for addicts and homeless people. In the area there are many foreign shops, eateries and newspaper stand which sell papers from around...More

We can only hope that the excellent Tiare Hotel breathes some new life into this area. Very rundown, with unsavory characters and desperate immigrants lurking about. No reason to come here as there are no nice cafes, restaurants or shops along the square. The metro...More

I don't feel safe walking on this square. Decades ago, Omonia square was a nice place, now days walking on daytime alone is asking for trouble, imagine afterwards when the sun goes down.

My wife had her passport and money stolen from her backpack while she wore it! They are very clever! They pushed her and crowded her so she lost perspective of what was going on. Avoid crowds and wear your backpack backwards!
