This Ancient and Modern Volos highlights tour led by a local PhD archaeologist and licensed tour guide, explores the long history, archaeology, and modern culture of this fascinating city. During our two-hour walk, we want to share our city with you: what makes it different and special, and how to experience Volos like a local.
With nearly 5,000 years of history, Volos’ exploration can be daunting. During our time together, we will use archaeological discoveries as a lens to look deeper into the history of the city and trace its evolution from the Neolithic times to the present. We will discuss how major historic events shaped our culture and share tips on local customs, eateries (tsipouradika) and shopping.
Our walk starts outside the University of Thessaly (the big yellow building at the east end of Volos' promenade) and ends in the Historic District (outside the Brick and Tile Museum) where you can absorb the ambiance of a neighborhood that sits on top of ancient settlements dating back as early as the 3rd millennium BC.
