Or take the Underground to Omonia Square and walk up to Akadimias Street at Kaningos Square. When checking the times from Aghios Konstantinos to Skiathos, allow 3.5 hours BEFORE the time from Aghios Konstantinos to catch the bus at the Kaningos Square! The bus connects with the hydrofoil for Skiathos at Agios Konstantinos and you can buy a ticket all the way through. Allow at least 2.5 hours from your planes arrival to get your bags and get to the Alkyon office.
