High Alert Travel Threat - Athens???

We are contemplating canceling our trip and cruise due to high alert terror threats. Any thoughts on safety in Athens and other Greek Island and Italy?

Isn't the recent threat alert about safety in ARAB countries?.

I know they have closed many consulates in them due to increased 'chatter' on terrorist networks but fail to see how this will affect Greece.

Just go and enjoy yourself! :O) :O)

United States have issued a travel warning about Arab countries while US authorities are also taking measures in the US themselves.

Neither Greece nor Italy are Arab countries. Nor a US terittory.

So, according to what US authorities have warned, you are probably safer in Italy and Greece than your current location.
