Tour description

We meet at the blue and white Dimos, town hall, on the seafront for a short walk until we reach the steps leading up to the Panagia ston Pirgos, or the so-called Panagitsa church, which sits on the rocky outcrop where Peparethos, as ancient Skopelos was first known, was founded. This is a steep walk that will require walking shoes or sturdy sandals.Anyone with mobility concerns can still join in this walk by an easier route that we can explain at the office.When the tour reaches the highest spot of Skopelos Town, with views across to nearby Alonissos and, on clear days, Mount Athos in the distance, we arrive at the Anatoli taverna, where the renowned Xintaris family of musicians have made their rebetiko ‘Greek blues’ rightly famous. The Anatoli actually sits in the courtyard of the 13th century Venetian castle that was built on the ruins of Peparithos and which was later sacked by the pirate Barbarossa, ‘Redbeard’.
