Volos is a port city in Thessaly on mainland Greece, approximately 200 miles north of Athens. Volos is a modern city with mythical roots: while a large number of modern buildings were put up after catastrophic earthquakes in 1955, modern day Volos is built on the sites of the ancient city of Iolcos, homeland of mythological hero Jason and the Argonauts, as well as Magnesia, which in legend is the birthplace of the Centaurs.
Modern Volos is built on the area of the ancient cities of Demetrias, Pagasae and Iolkos. Iolkos was the homeland of ancient Greek hero Jason. Today you can hike along the "Centaurs' Path", take a ride on the historic Pelion Railway or just enjoy the sunshine by the coast.
About the Sporades Islands
Of the 24 beautiful islands that make up the Sporades off the east coast of Greece, only 4 are fully inhabited; Alonnisos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros, each with their own unique feel and culture.
Sunbathing and swimming are the main things to do on the islands because of their gorgeous beaches and year-round Mediterranean sun. From the fruit trees and olive groves of Skopelos to the beautiful little villages of Alonnisos, the Sporades Islands are some of the most intriguing European islands to discover.
