My belief (and I'm a journalist not a scientist) is that what contamination there might be is very low level and possibly in hot spots rather than widespread. The effects of long term exposure to that (I'm talking years) may not be good, but for short term exposure (and a holiday/visit is extremely short term) I think the risks are very, very minimal.
