Volos, one of the cities that never ceases to amaze! It is not only conveniently located for exploring Mount Pelion (the Centaurs mountain) and the Sporades Islands, but it is also a renowned gastronomic attraction in Greece.
Situated between Athens and Thessaloniki, combining divine sea and daring mountains as a gateway to Mount Pelion (home to many traditional villages) and serving as the first step to the Sporades islands, Volos is a wonderful destination, full of life at every time of the day and night.
This bicycle-friendly city, sprawling around the coastline of the Pagasetic Gulf, has an ancient history as the mythic home of Jason and the Argonauts, a long coastline to walk along, several hidden gems, a dynamic nightlife, lots of events and things to do.
The neighborhood of Volonaki is the most trending place in the center of Volos, formed by two pedestrian streets which intersect and form the core of Volos' nightlife (Athens style).
Moreover, Palia, not only the most innovative neighbourhood but also the old part of the town, is famous for having the finest restaurants and also the most unique nightlife.
One of the oldest museums in Greece, the Archeology Museum of Volos houses many exquisite finds from early 20th-century to modern archaeological excavations in Thessaly. Exhibits on display include artifacts from the neolithic settlements of Dimini and Sesklo, the first neolithic settlement of Europe, as well as a wide variety of items from Ancient Greece.
Although primarily known as a gastronomic culinary paradise and for being the home of the traditional Tsipouradiko drink, this lively seaside city, being one of the most prominent university cities in Greece, is faithful to the easygoing Greek spirit.
