Your Adventure Starts in Skopelos, Greece

Logo Exploring EuropeAPRIL 3, 2015

SkopelosSkopelos is an island on the eastern side of Greece, in the Aegean Sea. The island shot to fame in 2008 as the filming location for “Mamma Mia.” As you tour the island you will recognize many settings from the movie, especially the Agios Ioannis chapel, perched atop a rocky outcrop that juts into the sea. But to the locals, Skopelos is known for its beautiful landscapes. Every beach boasts beautiful clear blue water, white sand or pebbles, and green pines. You can see the sunrise on the eastern beaches, then cross the island and see it set in the west.

It takes a bit of doing to get to Skopelos Island.  From the port of Agios Konstantinos it is a three-and-a-half-hour scenic cruise to Skopelos Town. I suggest departing on the earliest ferry (about 9 am) which will get you to Skopelos Town by midafternoon. It also might be a good idea to pre-book a hotel or B&B, especially if it’s in the busy summer tourist season. Once settled in, take a walk in the historic town center, get a bite to eat for lunch at one of the harbor-front cafés, and maybe visit a church or two. Read more…
