Situated on the island of Thessaly, the city of Volos is also the third largest port in the country, making it a hit with the crews, being at the middle point between Athens and Thessaloniki, two large yachting centers.

General Info
The city of Volos sits on the site of the ancient cities of Demetrias, Pagasae and Iolkos, and it’s been a place of great importance since ancient times, being one of the cities that hosted the Olympic Games.

Throughout its history it changed hands from the Byzantines, to the Ottomans then back to the Greeks in 1881. During that time, each civilization left its mark and today there are numerous vestiges to attest to its long and tumultuous history.

Travel & Arrival
The Volos Airport is located 30km southwest of the city and has flights from all major European operators, especially German ones, since this is a popular place for Germans. Currently, there are plans for an expansion of the airport as well as a train line to link to airport to the city.

By land, you can always drive to Volos as there are international bus lines linking the city with Athens and other towns in Europe.

By water, there is a ferry operator which has several lines running to different location in Greece, usually neighboring islands such as Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos.

The main attractions in town are the Athanasakeion Archaeological Museum of Volos, the St. Nikolaos Square, the city cathedral which is dedicated to the city’s patron saint, St. Nicholas, the seaside park, the Agios Konstantinos church and the promenade.

A great attraction for visitors is the Alykes minucipal beach where you’ll also find some nice cafes that stay open after dark. Also worth a trip are the neighboring mountains of Portaria and Makrynitsa which can offer you a splendid view, as well as some specimens of local architecture.

Sadly, most of the city’s neoclassical architecture has been replaced by the 20th century industrial boom as well as by a devastating earthquake which hit in 1955. However, there are still some things to see that will offer you an idea of the old Volos.
