Uncover the beauty of Greece as you browse remarkable archaeological artifacts and visit a quaint hillside village with sweeping views of the Greek coastline. After a short drive through downtown Volos, tucked in the foothills of densely forested Mount Pelion, you’ll arrive at the Archaeological Museum of Volos, where you can study ancient jewelry and classical statues such as a torso of Aphrodite. You’ll marvel at the museum’s highlight, hundreds of funerary stelae that still hold their color despite dating back to the 3rd century BC. Enjoy a picturesque, winding drive up the gentle slopes of Mount Pelion, passing through several picture-perfect villages. In Makrinitsa, which clings to a steep slope and is known as the Balcony of Pelion, admire captivating vistas of Volos and the azure bay below. Relish more than one hour of time on your own to relax in the shade of the main square, admire the frescoes in the Church of Agios Ioannis or delight in shopping the quaint boutiques before relaxing in a cozy café.
