In the 1998–1999 season, while playing in a UEFA Champions League match against Juventus, Georgatos caught the eye of Italian club Inter Milan, signing him in the 1999–2000 season for €7 million. He settled well in Serie A, playing 28 matches and scoring 2 goals for Inter. Despite that, he returned home the next season to Olympiacos for a season-long loan, where his love affair with the club lasted just one year. The following season, he returned to the Serie A, with Georgatos choosing to rejoin Inter after losing his first-team place at Olympiacos. Although he returned to Inter, he could not get back into the first-team because of an injury that kept him out for a while, playing only 10 matches and scoring 1 goal that season.

With his second spell in Italy being unsuccessful, Georgatos quickly returned to Greece, joining AEK Athens for €3 million. In the 2002–03 season he played 23 games as AEK finished third and also featured in four of the club's six UEFA Champions League matches. The next season, he scored six goals in six games but was unsettled at AEK and in the January transfer window began his third spell at Olympiacos, helping them finish second. In 2006 Georgatos expressed his intention to end his career at Olympiacos when he signed a one-year contract until July 2007, retiring at the end of the season.
