Is Greece a good place to work remotely

Greece offers a place for everyone under the sun, boasting ancient history, fantastic nature, and the most extensive and cleanest coastline in the Mediterranean region.

Greece is a cosmopolitan country. Many tourists and expats come here, so you definitely won’t feel like an outcast. Despite its economic problems during recent years, Greece has attracted tons of digital nomads by offering all the conditions necessary for a great workation.

That said, the average speed of the internet here is relatively low but could cover the standard remote office needs of sending a few emails. Therefore, it’s worthwhile to make sure your accommodation has reliable, fast internet or opt to work from a co-working space when you need fast internet.

Greece is part of the European Union, making it easy to establish yourself there. The prices of accommodation and cost of living are relatively low, there is minimal time difference, and the weather is marvelous most of the time (though the mainland does experience a winter season without much snow).

When you need a break from work, you can enjoy swimming, boating, short trips to nearby islands, exploring ancient Pantheons, and indulging in the diversity of Greek culture and cuisine.

Traveling around Greece is best done by car or motorbike, as the public transport system is limited and unreliable. If you don’t have your own vehicle, renting one is recommended.

One form of public transportation that is inevitable in Greece is the ferries. Don’t worry, they usually follow a seasonal schedule and often serve as the only connection between specific islands and the mainland.

Things to do

Culture Immerse yourself in the rich history of Greece by visiting iconic archaeological sites like the Acropolis in Athens and the ancient city of Delphi.
Dining Indulge in the flavors of Greece by trying traditional dishes such as moussaka, souvlaki, and spanakopita, and don't forget to sample some local olive oil and feta cheese.
Sights Take a sunset stroll along the breathtaking cliffs of Santorini and witness the stunning views of the Aegean Sea and the iconic blue-domed churches.
Entertainment Experience the vibrant nightlife of Mykonos, with its lively beach clubs and bars that will keep you dancing until the early hours of the morning.
Shopping Explore the bustling markets of Athens, like the Monastiraki Flea Market, where you can find unique souvenirs, handmade crafts, and traditional Greek products.
Outdoor Discover the natural beauty of Greece by hiking the Samaria Gorge in Crete, or exploring the stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters of Zakynthos, known for its famous Shipwreck Beach.
