Walking Tour in Modern Volos

Half Day tour up to 4 hours

Are you looking for something different? Do you want to be guided in the history of modern Volos and not the ancient? Are you an industrial fan? Then book this tour and hear all about the evolution of an authentic Greek city far away from the big groups.

Volos is a new city of the 19th century with long industrial history. Many people moved here and marked the area with their traditions. We will discover them together.

We will walk through the evolution of that city starting from the oldest part of it and ending to the present. We will visit the former Roof Tile and Brickworks Factory of Tsalapata’s family in Volos and nowadays Museum of the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation where you will learn about the production process.

Then we will reach the city center and the famous coastal part with many traditional restaurants. If you are interested in tasting, you can try our local Tsipouro, a strong distilled spirit containing 40–45% alcohol by volume. If this is strong enough for you don’t worry! You will enjoy the appetizers (seafood, fish and salad). This is a Must-do experience in Volos!
