tips for travelling on train, from airport to acropolishi

Hi, can anyone share with me on:

1) are the trains safe from snatch thieves? My friends who just came back from athens shared of stories like teenagers snatching your belongings and running off

2) apart from wearing wallet inside the clothes, what other precautions should I take as a tourist?

3) will taking a bus from airport to acropolis be a safer route?

Thanks :)

Just take the precautions you would do in any big city. If you are heading for Acropolis you switch from the Blue line to the Red line in Syntagma for Acropolis station (one station heading for direction Elliniko). The bus terminates in Syntagma square.
