InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Athens

Hello to all Americans in Athens! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Athens? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Athens which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Athens is a global city with lots to offer. The Greek capital is a culturally rich city known for being an archaeological hub, a center for the arts and philosophy, and much more! With the network of buses, trams, and metro lines, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Alimos or Glyfada, for example, which are both approximately a 45-minute public transportation journey away from Athens’s center.

Although Athens has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Athens, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
