What To Expect

As the sun sinks into the Aegean, you'll set off to explore the old quarter of Skiathos town, where time seems to have stood still. You'll spend the evening with a local guide, discovering tales of the island from past and present. The tour includes visits to the island museum and a church, as well as a tasting of local wines and a liqueur. Vasilis, one of our expert guides, says, ‘Only a few steps from the centre of town are hidden corners, with beautiful churches and peaceful cobbled streets. Skiathos played a hugely symbolic role in Greece's fight for independence – our first flag was raised here in 1807. We have so much to tell.'You'll begin your evening at the former home of one of Greece's most celebrated authors, Alexandros Papadiamantis. From here, you'll explore Plakes, the oldest part of Skiathos town, where typical Greek cottages line crooked lanes. Bright splashes of bougainvillea and classic blue shutters are everywhere. Revealing the secrets of Skiathos through stories of everyday life, your guide will show you the area from a local perspective.After a guided visit to a neighbourhood church, you'll delve into the history of the island at Skiathitian House museum. Antiques and costumes from times gone by are displayed in this typical townhouse. Afterwards, you'll have the chance to sample a local liqueur produced by the museum's owner. What better way to finish your evening than with a tasting of Greek wines and nibbles at one of the oldest houses in Skiathos Town?
