The drive to Kastro by jeep was entertaining!!! Loved walking through here right to the end where the views are amazing. No visit to Skiathos is complete without visiting here

Interesting history of Skiathos to be gained here. It's pretty steep so avoid doing at high noon but go while light enough to manage your truck and appreciate the views.

Really good history lesson to be had here, it really gets your imagination going . However it is a long walk to the site down a steep hill so you will need transport.

Visited Kastro as part of a boat trip. We didn't have time to see it all so went back when we hired a jeep. Its a really interesting place to visit and has some beautiful views. Well worth a visit.

You can drive very close to it but the walk up into the ruined village does require walking on small rocks along paths. You can get a reasonable view of it from the small car park right at the bottom of the approach.
