Greece is calling.

Athens is a bustling, diverse city established over 4,000 years of history. It is a place that has reinvented itself over and over by building on top of what came before.

After a difficult financial crisis, Athens is re-emerging as an edgy, entrepreneurial hub, where back-alley doors give way to trendy bars, life is lived after 8pm, and old and new come together to create a city unlike any other.


Not to mention, it's a gateway to some truly magical places and basing yourself there for a month means there’s time to explore several.

Join us in Athens for a month to uncover a truly remarkable city as you dive into world-changing philosophical ideas that were born right here.


No Wifi Worries Here.

If you will be working remotely while in Athens, we’ve made sure to give you access to what you’ll need to get the job done. We have partnered with a local co-working space that can cater to a range of needs. Here you will find super fast wifi, plenty of outlets, and even private rooms in case you need to get some privacy or just spread out.

Plus, we've created partnerships with local cafes and restaurants to turn them into Sojrn Spaces - places you're always welcome to pop into to socialize, get some work done, or grab a bite to eat.

Flights are not included so you will have to book this yourself, however we are always on hand to help. For this trip you should fly into Athens Airport. If you fly in on Day 1 of the Chapter we will include an airport transfer for you.


Visa requirements will vary depending upon nationality. Should you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us for assistance. HERE is a great resource to figure out what the visa requirements are for you.

In-destination budgets vary depending upon your personal spending habits when it comes to food, travel, local adventures and other personal expenses. As a ballpark figure, we would suggest a minimum additional budget of 600 euros for the full 4 weeks. However, if you plan on doing multiple optional activities and eating at restaurants for most of your stay, budget at least 1,200 euro. This budget does not include any weekend trips you may wish to take. Example food pricing for Greece

  • Typical Greek Breakfast: 5 euro
  • Average restaurant lunch: 8 euro
  • Average dinner(w/o alcohol): 15 euro


The health and safety of our customers is always our top priority. Each Chapter will have clear Covid-19 guidelines in place based on local requirements. As local ordinances are being updated regularly, we will share Sojrn policies closer to the program start date. We reserve the right to update these on an ongoing basis per the available data and recommendations of local authorities. Vaccination Requirement: You’re required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to come on this trip. Proof of Negative Covid Test: In addition, we also require a negative covid test within 48 hours of the first day of the trip (at home tele-med tests are ok!) The local host will ask for you to show proof of a negative test prior to the start of the trip. This can be in the form of an email, letter or a picture showing the result. If you are flying from the US and are required to have a PCR test taken within 72 hours, we will also accept this to join the trip. **Please keep in mind that if you’re starting your travels early, we suggest getting tested before you leave your home country and then either bring a proctored, tele-med self-test kit to take before the trip starts or schedule to get tested locally at a covid testing facility (both antigen or PCR test are accepted). For more information on our COVID protocols, please visit our FAQ page.

Online Portal

A month before your Sojrn, you will be invited to an online hub where you can connect with chaptermates, meet your local host, and get access to the Chapter Guide, which has all the information you need to have a successful Sojrn in Greece. Through this online hub, you can also book optionals and access resources that will supplement your learning about Greek philosophy.

Local Host & Chapter Host

Every chapter has a local host on hand throughout the 4 weeks of the Chapter with the aim of making sure you have everything you need to have a relaxing, productive and inspiring time in your temporary new home. Whilst your local host is focused on making sure you can enjoy your new city. The Chapter host is on hand to make your evenings and spare time more fun. We think happiness is shared experiences, from finding the best secret bar to weekend adventures out of the city. Your experience host will help make this happen so you can focus on doing the fun things (and work of course).

In-Country Support

Part of the benefit of traveling with Sojrn is the support we provide throughout your experience. From an on the ground local host, to our team at HQ, there is always someone available to help solve any issues you may encounter.
