“Mamma Mia here I go again!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

You can't go to Skopelos and not visit Agios Ionnis, even if you're not a fan of the film! Lovely location and amazing views from the top. but it is a bit of a hike so not suitable if you have difficulties walking.

“Beautiful and worth the climb”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Worth visiting once and worth the climb to get the amazing views. However go early to avoid the coach or boat crowds. There are nicer churches to see in Skopelos town. The beach is worth a visit for a bit of snorkelling but there's no shade there until late afternoon.

“Perfect and peaceful”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Amazing views from the top, such a peaceful place and the cove at the bottom was just perfect for a paddle afterwards.

“A must for Mama Mia fans.”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The walk up isn't as bad as it looks. Took 5-10 minutes but I wouldn't recommend it for small children or seniors since it's a long way down if you fall in the stairs.

The view from the top is good, but the church was a bit disappointing.

A definit must for mama Mia fans taking the tour around the island.
