"... We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us."

- Winston Churchill

This tour of Volos’ most iconic industrial buildings will unfold the modern history of the city in front of your eyes. An important production center in the early 20th century, Volos possesses some 50 industrial units, factories and warehouses, within its modern urban plan. We will visit 10 of these industrial monuments and learn about their significance for the local society and economy past and present. References to archaeology, architecture and local traditions complete the picture of a region with thousands years of history. Wars, refugees, earthquakes, incidents from the life of the workers and businessmen will seduce you to a trip back in time. Our tour may not be romantic, but the stories of the buildings and their people will touch your hearts. 

Tour Duration: 3 hours (including a twenty-minute stop for coffee and rest) 

Suggested number of participants: 2 - 8 adults
