The city where Jason and his Argonauts
set sail on a quest for the Golden Fleece, the local anise-flavored spirit
tsipouro (not to be confused with ouzo) that flows abundantly ,the morning
walks at the Port, is Volos that combines the allure of the sea with mystical
charms and mythical legends.
Not only it is considered one of the country’s prettiest cities, but it’s also believed to be the birthplace of Centaurs.
Follow Argonauts Avenue on the seafront to find a replica of the infamous Argo that has been painstakingly recreated based on historical texts.
The many yachts and colourful fishing boats along the way are sure to capture your imagination and fuel daydreams of your own epic journeys.
From 1922 onwards refugees from Asia Minor begin to settle in Volos & bring with them the tradition of tsipouro, over the years this tradition becomes an “ institution” and a trademark of the city & somehow we reached today with Volos counting hundreds of tsipouro restaurants so be sure to try dishes like freshly caught calamari which pairs perfectly with tsipouro!
The motto of these tavernas is “ as long as you drink, we feed you”.
