If you’re a digital nomad and Greece is your next destination, we advise you to think about it twice. If you go for Athens, we suggest you to stay there maximum two weeks. It’s not a real paradise for digital nomads, during summer it’s really hot, some part of the city are really dirty and shabby, it is quite expensive and there is nothing interesting to see if you exclude the Parthenon and the ancient ruins. If you’re a tourist, spend there 4 days: it will be enough to visit the center, the museums and the Acropolis.
If you decide to go to the islands, you have to calculate that everything is more expensive. If you’re a digital nomad, pay attention: internet is not working that well, but the quality of life is just amazing. The weather is much better than in Athens, people are cooler, food is so tasty and you will be able to live merged with nature. If you’re a tourist, you should definitely visit Greek islands: they’re a must! Don’t forget to get a good backpack if you decide to visit some islands, you’ll not regret it. We have this one since 2 years and we really love it!
If you’re a digital nomad and you choose to stay on the Athens coast, you’ll enjoy the benefits of being on the land, you’ll live closer to the sea than in Athens and you’ll have much cheaper prices. If you’re a tourist, share your vacation in two part: half in Athens and half on the coast or islands, you’ll see more than one aspect of Greece and you’ll not regret it!
