Skopelos Town is the main village of the island; it surrounds the harbor, offering wonderful views when the ferry approaches the island. The port is located on a spectacular bay, always busy, while the waterfront promenade is home to dozens of bars and tavernas.
In contrast, the scenery in the upper town is made up of tranquil lanes and alleys full of flowers, mazes ending in small squares and old Byzantine churches.
It is full of with traditional architecture of whitewashed houses with terracotta-tiled roofs and wooden balconies. Built on a steep slope, the old town mostly inaccessible to cars, adding to its tranquility.
