Some countries have an official government website gathering the most recent safety and security advice for their citizens travelling abroad (but hey, everyone can look). They also contain other useful information, such as the visa policies, the local laws, etc).
These websites are great resources for travelers! They contain actual, up-to-date and official information:
* United Kingdom "Foreign travel advice"
* United States of America "Travel advisory"
* France "Conseils aux voyageurs" (in French)
* Austalia "Smartraveller"
* Canada "Travel Advice and Advisories" (also available in French)
* Spain "Recomandaciones de Viaje" (in Spanish)
It is very interesting to note that some countries can evaluate very differently the safety of a specific zone. This is why it is important to vary your sources.
The situation can also be different depending on your nationality and the relations between your country and the country you want to visit.
You may also want to take a look at the website of your embassy in the country you're going to, here are a few examples:
Enjoy a full day trip up to the Lassithi Plateau with majestic views and off-roading thrown in. Keep your eyes open for eagles & vultures. Explore Greek mythology and visit the birthplace of the Greek god Zeus. Also visit a 2000 year old plane tree in Krassi.
The most famous archaeological sites in the world like you’ve never seen before. The evocative scenery of the ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum and the boundless panorama of the imposing Vesuvius are the supporting pillars of what still today represents a memorable spectacle,a journey through time through ancient and glorious Roman necropolis.
