The other night I parked in a spot vacated by another car in the port. When I returned I found a pink ticket on the windscreen all in Greek with no translation - the only familiar figures being €80. There were no signs whatsoever that parking was prohibited. My villa owner very kindly helped me settle this.
Tonight I parked in a clearly designated parking zone in the port. However, when we returned to the car there was another pink ticket on the windscreen. Another €80 - which is reduced to €40 if you pay within 10 days - I only discovered this when settling the previous ticket. Again, there were no signs that parking was restricted. Something untoward is going on here with the port authority who must see this as easy income. Does anyone have experience of dealing with parking tickets in Skiathos who can advise?
This is certainly leaving a very nasty taste, is quite shocking and is ruining my first time experience here in Skiathos. They provide no communication about parking restrictions and then hit you with perpetual fines.
