Greece, the country synonymous with the magnificent ruins enriched with thousands of years of history and philosophy is slowly turning into a favourite country among the digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and the remote workers across the world.

While Greece’s economy is trying to bounce back from the recent crisis, more and more people all over the world are calling this beautiful country in south eastern Europe home, which is a sign of better things to come.

One cannot compare the costs to the countries in Asia, but compared to the other countries in Europe, Greece fairs better.

1- Beautiful Locations to Inspire & Network

A country that lies at the crossroads of three continents truly has something more to offer. The neighbouring countries in the continents of Africa, Asia, and wonderful European cities have had a profound influence on Greece, which has become a melting point of culture, history, food and people.

So whether it’s the ruins that beckon the travelers or the gorgeous islands along the Aegean coastline with views to behold, Greece has it covered.

While the postcard like streets of Santorini overlooking the southern part of Aegean sea needs no introduction, the picturesque party destination Rhodes, Mykonos and Zakynthos waits to be explored.

The average cost of the connection depends on the providers and the cities, but it must not cost more if you move to coworking places for work. It would cost around 230 Euros per month for a coworking space in Athens.
