Reference point of the city, with fishermen and fishing boats, shops, its interesting buildings and marvelous views to Pagassitikos and Pelion, it invites visitors for walks and interesting stops.
The beach walk is enjoyable. Here, you will find several cafes, shops, many catering shops and tsipouradika.
Volos does not allow you to feel bored
From the small taverns of the Old Port Authority, of New Demetriada, Nea Ionia, to the renowned "Scala of Milan" and the family taverns of Volos, many generations of revelers and gourmets have passed by. Near to them there are restaurants serving international cuisine and flavors from around the world.
But and for the rest of the night, Volos does not stop its offers: You can choose among the joy of vigorous entertainment in dozens of bars on the main pedestrian streets around the church of St. Nikolas and in Paleon district, but also in places with live music - many with their own unique history for more than 20 years - or the romantic tranquility in its hidden corners, which are inviting you for an endless walk.
With your morning coffee on the sunny beach, at noon with tsipouro in the picturesque places, with the wide variety of options and evening entertainment, Volos will not allow you to feel boredom.
The reputed tsipouradika of Volos
It would be a great omission if the visitor of the city does not feel the atmosphere of tsipouradika and does not enjoy the ritual of tsipouro accompanied by appetizers, which are mainly seafood of any kind. From Nea Ionia to Anavros and Ano Volos to the beach, about 400 tsipouradika give the color of a popular entertainment and constitute the essential meeting place for Volos people and visitors.
