Im looking forward to a lovely relaxing holiday with my family in Skiathos. What kind of activities can I expect for children Aged 5 and 9?
We are landing in Skiathos at 14.00 in august and need to get to Volos. We are two adults and three-year old twins.
The Hellenic ferry doesn't appear to sail until 20.00 and get into Volos at 22.40.
Does anyone know any other ferries or water taxis we could use to make the crossing earlier?
Thanks a lot

I am getting married in Skiathos in August and have been thinking about hiring a boat (for about 30 guest) for after our ceremony at the Bourtzi. We were hoping to have some music and drinks and snacks onboard and just take a short tour around.
Do you know of any websites that I could look at or names that I can use of potential boats for this purpose? I was also hoping to get a rough cost before we go so that we can budget...I guess this might not be possible.
Cheers for any help.
Does anyone know if I need a CBT Part 1 to hire a Scooter in Skiathos ?
I will be travelling from Volos to Athens this summer. I wanted to know what is a more reliable and faster means of transportation - the bus or the train. I need to catch a flight from the airport in Athens at 4 pm. I will be arriving in Volos via ferry at 8:30 am. If I take the bus, apparently I will arrive at the bus station in Athens and then have to take a taxi to the Larissa metro before getting to the Airport. If I take the train/rail I will arrive at the Larissa railway station and then take a metro to the airport. Is this correct? Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Hi, I've been trying forever to find out what the timetable is for the ferry but the website doesn't show it. I doesn't seem to matter what route you put in the system, they all don't work. I was wondering about September one way to Thessaloniki.
Will be going soon to Greece. After taking some advice and help of other members we decided to spent 5 nights in Pelion (or Pilio) peninsula. We will not be staying in Volos but in one of the vilages (Aghios Ioannis). We will be staying from Tuesday evening (12 May) until Sunday morning (17 May) when we are going back to Athens to catch our flight.
Now, the big question is - what we should do/see in Pilio? I had a look on google maps to see some pictures, pick those places that look good and just go there - but there are so many of them that drew our attention that if we wanted to see all of it we would have to spend there 2 weeks. We will have a car to make it easier.
What we really hope for is to be able to drive around and visit picturesque places with great views of valleys, mountains and see, beaches with clifs and rocks where you can shoot some great photos and admire wonders of the nature, see some little hidden places with atmoshpere, perhaps have some nice walk for half a day. Perhaps someone know some scenic routes to drive in a car. Anything that is pleasing for the eye.
As I mentioned earlier from the pictures taken by other people all around pelion it should not be difficult to get all that but with limited time we were hoping someone could help us choose the best of the best
And we will be staying in Aghios Ioannis. And thanks a lot for your help so far.
can i have please the time table of busses from volos to milina and back, relevant june 2009.
