The Greek island of Skopelos is located in the north western Aegean Sea and is one of the Northern Sporades group of islands. The island is to the east of the Pelion Peninsular on the Greek mainland and to the north of the island of Euboea. On a clear day the neighbouring island of Skiathos can clearly be seen from Skopelos. The island's port is located in the island's main town, also called Skopelos and is located on a bay on the island's northern coast.
This green island has many varieties of flowers, trees and shrubs growing on it and is one of the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea. The local vegetation is mainly comprised of forests of Aleppo Pines, Kermes Oaks, a small forest of Holm Oaks, Oleo-Ceratonion maquis, fruit trees and olive groves. Because of the need for Pine trees which were used to build ships, the island's Oak species have largely been replaced by Pine forests.
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.
The Greek city of Volos is quite a new city, by Greek standards, although ruins found within the city and surrounding area date back to the earliest inhabited days of the Balkan Peninsular. The modern city of Volos was founded in the 19th century but much of it was destroyed by an earthquake that struck in 1955. As a consequence, most of the buildings in the city today were built after 1955. The waterfront area of Volos has a number of restaurants, cafes and bars and is a popular place with locals and tourists alike. A popular attraction in the city is the Volos Archaeological Museum which contains artefacts that back as far as the Bronze Age. Also in the city is the Municipal Museum in the town hall which contains the work of modern Greek artists and St. Constantine Church which is a beautiful 20thj century building located at the end of the promenade. There are also two archaeological sites not far outside the city that have Mycenean era ruins. Dimini is the smaller but better developed and Sesklo is larger and offers beautiful views but has not been excavated fully.
