France, Spain more dangerous than Greece for tourists

British Foreign Office on tourism danger zones

The recent terrorist attack in Tunisia, which led to the death of at least 30 British tourists, has left many holiday makers cautious about what destinations are the safest to travel to without fearing for their lives. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) released data, including a map that shows the threat zone levels in colors. Spain, France and Turkey are destinations the UK FCO considers to be of high risk, while Greece, despite its economic chaos, with closed banks and caps on withdrawals is in code orange, a general risk level. Germany, Italy and Cyprus are also seen as general risk countries.
