Volos Hotels

Make yourself at home in the luxury hotels of Volos – or Iolkos as it was known in ancient times – a picturesque city that was also the home of Jason and his legendary band of Argonauts. Volos has pulled travellers into the heart of the Pelion Peninsula’s beauty for thousands of years, and the area’s densely tangled forests are a breeding ground for myths and legends - Mount Pelion alone is said to be the home of centaurs, and the birthplace of Theseus and Heracles. Modern day Volos still stirs the imagination - with its stunning seafront and romantic beaches - and the delicious tastes of Greek treats like soft, roast lamb and pure tsipouro spirits - made from discarded grape skins – will prove to be your Achilles’ heel.

Things to see

Collections of prehistoric artefacts, unearthed from the soils of the ancient settlements of Sesklo and Dimini, fill the exhibits at Volos’s Archaeological Museum, where you can see examples of some of the earliest written music, before hearing contemporary musicians interpret the ancient notation. The exhibits will also fill you in on the colourful characters and vengeful gods of Ancient Greek mythology, putting you in a great position to fully appreciate the effort that was invested in creating the life-size replica of Jason’s wooden Argo ship - which floats on the waves of the city’s harbour. Hire a boat, to embark on your own adventure, rowing through the port’s glassy water - or make a beeline for the sands of Horefto Beach, where you can lie back, and let the sun’s warm rays kiss your face. If you get too hot, simply kick off your flip flops, and dip your toes into the rolling ocean’s rhythmically pulsing swells.

Hotels in Volos

Waves wash against harbour walls, metres away from the beautiful hotels in Volos, which offer privileged views of the yachts and ships that leave frothy wakes in the turquoise ocean. Look down from your balcony, to see comfortable sun loungers, spaced around tempting swimming pools, and shaded sitting areas. Your air conditioning unit will hum gently as it cools the hotel room, and you can relax on a sofa with a magazine, or channel hop through your satellite television's options, if you want a break from the sun. Connecting your laptop to the hotel’s WiFi is effortless, and friendly staff will always be on hand to help out with any problems.

Where to stay

If, for some reason, morning bike rides along Volos’s seaside promenade don’t appeal, then it’s worth considering staying somewhere even more peaceful, like Agria. Here, you can swim in warm aquamarine waves, slurp fishy Kakavia soup, and listen to hauntingly beautiful violin performances, during April’s Evmelia International Music Festival. A stay in Portaria, meanwhile, is ideal for exploring Mount Pelion - where you can build up speed while slaloming across the mythical mountain’s thick coat of winter snow. If you’re here in summer, then enjoy wild hikes, or seek out the hidden coves that the mountain shields away from the tourists. Breathtaking ribbons of sparsely populated white sand, and dazzlingly clear ocean waters, will be ample reward for your efforts.

How to get to Volos

The most convenient way to reach the city is to fly into Volos Airport, which is located about 24 kilometres from the city centre. It’s a quiet airport, but air traffic increases dramatically during summer, as seasonal flights from the rest of Europe start to arrive. Reach the city, from the terminal, by hopping in a bus, taxi or hotel transfer shuttle. You can also get to Volos from other parts of Greece using intercity busses - with the journey to Athens taking around 4 hours.
