OK, so what about the sights? Well, speaking personally (and I can because it's my blog) I think Skopelos is absolutely beautiful! The town is the standard idea of a Greek Island town, white washed houses with coloured shutters and doors and red or slate roofs, built up the hillside and looking down on the tavernas that line the harbour.
This panoramic view taken from Panagitsou Tou Pirgo (which is the church overlooking the harbour) looks pretty much west and takes in the whole harbour.
This view is taken from Mount Palouki overlooking the Monatery of the Transfiguration with Skopelos Town in the distance. You can see the hairpin bends on the road up and they can be quite hairy when you are two up on a little scooter, especially when you haven't ridden a motor bike for years! As you can see, Skopelos Island is not typically Greek in that it is covered in trees from shore to shore with many beaches shaded by fragrant pine trees.
And this is our home.
I'll put some more pix of Skopelos up later.
