Any advice on the most hassle-free travel plan from Athens to Skopelos?
I'd be traveling from the US arriving at the Athens airport at 9:00. I thought the quickest way would be to fly from Athens to Skiathos (and then ferry over to Skopelos). But the flight to Skiathos via Olympic Air is not until 16:45!... And on the way back, the flight from Skiathos is at 18:00, while the flight back to the US would be at 11:00, meaning that I would need to leave Skiathos a day in advance. Is there lodging near the airport to spend the last night of the trip?
Of course, I'd also need to factor in the ferry schedules from Skiathos to Skopelos...
Or should I go a different route and take a ferry to Skiathos? I have not looked up the schedules yet, but I'm assuming this is unlikely to save much time or money.
For those of you who have traveled to Skopelos, how have you done it?
