Volos Waterfront Cafes

Volos is located roughly in the middle of mainland Greece, north of Athens and south of Thessalonika, the two largest cities in the country. It is an important port and industrial area that developed during the 19th century, was destroyed by a massive earthquake in the mid-1950s, and was rebuilt. It is also the gateway to the Pelion peninsula, a popular tourist area in both summer and winter. The city is pleasant and welcoming with nice cafes and exciting clubs. In the immediate area, historical attractions are limited. However, it is the Aegean port closest to Meteora, the UNESCO World Heritage site where monks built monasteries on top of sandstone pillars. Beautiful mountain villages dot the Pelion where tourists go to relax, see rustic local architecture and wonder at the amazing views. It is also the gateway to the Sporades Islands, but the ferry trip to Skiathos is not practical for the cruiser.
