Athens



What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Air quality is pretty good in Greece. - Oct 3, 2017
Air quality is fine. - Jan 15, 2017
The air quality is good/moderate. It is easy to escape the city and hike in the mountains or relax at the beach within an hour or so. - Dec 20, 2016
Good air outside of Athens. Athens is very similar to downtown Los Angeles. Lots of traffic, graffiti, pollution and rude drivers. The winds bring dirt of from Africa, so at least once a year there will be "mud" rain and also a dusting of yellow pollen in the spring. - Sep 7, 2013
Bad in the center of Athens, especially during the summertime. Same smog conditions as LA. Away from the center, excellent. - Jul 14, 2012
It depends how far out from Athens you live. Downtown is bad, suburbs are pretty good. - Jun 30, 2010
