With vast amounts of green vegetation and shrubs, the island has a reputation for being the greenest island in the area, with many miles of olive groves. There are three main towns on the island, each with its own distinct character and vibe. The town of Skopelos is the largest on the island, and has a rich history dating back a few thousand years. There are lots of different archeological sites to explore in and around the town. There are plenty of great places to explore in the main town, including the 11th Century basilica of Agios Athanasios. Another great place to see in the town is the Folklore Museum of Skopelos, which houses a wide array of crafts made from the people of the island during the 19th and 20th Century.
