Athens-Santorini-Skopelos-Athens

Am planning a short trip to Greece between March 10th and 18th. Need to know the quickest/best way to do an Athens-Santorini-Skopelos-Athens round trip between 13th early morning and 17th late evening, possibly giving me 2 days (13th & 14th) in Santorini and two in Skopelos (15th and 16th)

Thanks in advance

March is still the winter season so many/most restaurants, tourist shops etc will be closed on the islands and you can't depend on good weather.

In your timescale it's not practical to combine these two islands. To get to Skopelos from Santorini involves flying back to Athens then a flight to Skiathos and a ferry to Skopelos. Or you can get a bus from Athens to Agios Konstantinos and a ferry to Skopelos. Even if flight and/or bus/ferry connections worked out conveniently either route would probably take you a whole day.

It would take 2 flights via Athens then ferry Skiathos > Skopelos, or 2 days land sea travel between those two islands.

The land route would be via Volos to Skopelos, as Ag Konstantinos is a summer connection.

You can do it if you like, but Skopelos does not warrant it, much nearer islands like Naxos or Paros are on the ferry route from Santorini back to Piraeus(Athens) thus only 2 hours or so.
