Chora Town, Skyros Island

My first stop in my one month travel journey through Greece was to Skyros Island. Skyros Island is located in the middle of the Aegean Sea, and although it looks more geographically apart of the Sporades Island group, it belongs to Evia. To tell you the truth, I don’t care where it belongs, I just know it’s one of my favourite islands in Greece! I fell in love and I know if you go, you will too!!!

The main town in Skyros is called Chora. Chora is where all the houses are gathered around. In the case of Skyros Island, Chora town is built at the inner side of a sharp rock. You will find narrow streets called ” Ta sokakia” making it a picturesque experience to walk through.

Although, from my experience Skyros Island looks more of a summer place to travel, my friend recommends the best time to travel to Skyros Island is during the Carnival. I guess there is only one way to find out…… TO GO! If you have been to Skyros Island during the Carnival, please leave a message below! I’d love to hear how your experience to Skyros was!
