One might argue that Skopelos is the greenest Greek island. Truth is that the foliage is at its finest as the island is packed to the brim with trees. Mamma mia fans are well aware that this is the movie’s original backdrop. The settlement of Chora, the island’s capital, is a declared heritage settlement due to its dreamy surroundings. Nestling at the highest point of Chora, the Venetian Castle of Skopelos offers 360 views of the entire island. Beach-wise, open your maps and drop some pins at Agios Giannis, Panormos and Hovolo, a few of the island’s captivating beaches. Beat your hunger pangs with the swirling strifti tyropita, a local cheese pie bursting with flavor. Try Stis Kirias Fotinis, Agnanti and Flisvos for some fresh Greek food.
