August 2015 – Skopelos, Greece

Skopelos was founded by Staphylos,  one of the sons of the god Dionysos and the princess Ariadne of Crete.

The beauty of the bays, natural harbors and cliffs that steeply fall into the sea in the greatest part of the coast is breathtaking.

Skopelos and its neighbour Skiathos were the filming locations of the 2008 film Mamma Mia. The wedding procession was filmed at the Agios Ioannis Chapel near Glossa while “Does Your Mother Know” was performed at the amazing beach of Kastani Bay.
