travel42 Port Guide: Volos

Volos travel42 Port of Call Guide

A modern port city on the mainland of central Greece, Volos has a good archaeological museum (Paleolithic jewelry and painted tombstones) and a mountainous countryside.

The cold air and pleasant forests of nearby Mount Pilion (mythical home of the centaurs) provide a welcome break from the summer heat. Volos is located 110 mi/175 km northwest of Athens.
