Start Your New Life as an Expat in Athens

Where to start with a city like Athens? This fascinating metropolis has been around for over 2,500 years and is the center of Greek civilization. Cast your eyes up and 200 feet above the city you will spy the magnificent Parthenon towering over the city. This buzzing capital mixes ancient monuments with a modern and lively vibe that is distinctly Greek; it's chaos! Athenians depend on humor and local knowledge to deal with it all, but you can rely on InterNations and our diverse community of expats to be your guide in this wonderfully frenzied city. InterNations has a host of groups that will enable any newcomers to quickly meet other expatriates in a relaxed and secure setting. From clubbing to professional networking and wine tasting to Greek coffee sampling, the InterNations Groups provide the perfect way to get to know your new surroundings and build up your social network.
