We are considering going to Greece around Easter, but we have noticed that Easter in the states is April 21st but Greek Orthodox is April 28th.
Are most places closed? If you had 8 days how would you do Greece? We are low key people who love history and food. Not into the party scene.
Greeks are Orthodox and celebrate Easter on a different date then in the West. (If you visit during Western Easter it will make no differnce as they don’t observe those holidays.) If it’s Greek Easter then most museums will be closed Easter Sunday and maybe Monday. Most shops will be closed Sunday and Monday. Most restaurants will be open both days. On the islands it will be busier than the weekends before and after (but not high-season busy). In the Plaka in Athens it will be a lot like the islands with most everything open. It’s a fine time to visit and the Easter celebrations don’t make a huge difference on visitors’ plans. All ferries and flights run like normal.
Does Skiathos or Skopelos have better beaches? Which island has more nightlife and shopping?
Skiathos has more (and better) sandy beaches and much more nightlife (of the dj and club variety). Skopelos is quieter, larger, and more scenic. Beaches on Skopelos tend to be pebble beaches. Skiathos has an airport, Skopelos doesn’t. In high season there are many ferries between Skiathos and Skopelos so it’s easy to stay on one island and do a day trip to the other.
