I will be vacationing in Skopelos and Skiathos in August and September 2016. I will fly into the Athens airport and it sounds like I should make my way to Agios Constantinos to take a ferry to Skopelos. I am confused as to the best way to get from the Athens airport to the port of Agios Constantinos. I prefer not to take a taxi (I am on a budget!). Will I have to take a bus or the metro into downtown Athens to get transportation to the port? Also, any suggestions on places to stay on these islands? Again, I am on a budget and usually prefer rooms to let instead of hotels. Places with a sea view would be great but more important is that they are in town (close to nightlife), clean, and have friendly owners. Does anyone know anything about live music on these islands? I like traditional greek rebetiko music for dancing. Any suggestions?? Thanks!
