As the title says, book online was easy and fast as I expect with direct ferries. You just need to think about to check in on time and then you're off! On the ferry everyone was courteous and friendly, and ship was fine too. The trip was good. Thanks, Carlo.

Located in the Northern Sporades group of islands, the Greek island of Skiathos lies in the north west Aegean Sea to the east of the Pelion Peninsular in Magnesia on the Greek mainland, and also to the west of the island of Skopelos, which can clearly be seen on a clear day. Most of the towns on the island are located in the south and south west as the terrain is less rugged than that of the northern parts of the island. The island's main town, also called Skiathos, is located in the north east of the island whose coastline is characterised by capes, inlets and peninsulars.
The Monastery of the Annunciation is a popular tourist attraction on the island and is sometimes called the Evangelistria Monastery which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is located around 4 km to the north of Skiathos Town on a hillside but unfortunately some of the monastery's buildings, which were built in 1794, are now in ruins. However, the church and accommodation buildings have been restored.
Skiathos is connected by conventional ferry and high speed ferry to Thessaloniki, the other islands in the Sporades, the islands of the Cyclades and to Crete.
The beautiful Greek island of Skopelos lies in the Aegean Sea and is located between the island of Skiathos and the island of Alonissos and is popular with tourists, especially with families and couples. The island is perhaps most famous for its role in the Hollywood movie Mamma Mia, where some scenes were filmed on the island. Especially well known is the Church of Agios Ioannis Kastri, which is know sometimes referred to as the Mamma Mia Church. The island's beaches are lovely and have war, crystal clear waters and are perfect for spending lazy days in the sun on. The island's port is located in Skopelos Town and along with Glossa are the two main villages on the island. Both are built on a hill and provide visitors with spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.
The island is served by hydrofoils and ferries from the ports of Volos Magnesia and Agios Konstantinos, Phthiotis on mainland Greece which also allows connections to and from Alonissos and Skiathos. In summer there is also a ferry to and from Kymi in Euboea.
