Volos is a major port city situated in the center of Greece. The town boasts about its ancient heritage. The first two prehistoric villages in Greece were discovered here. It’s also the birthplace of Jason leader of the Argonauts. Moreover the Argonauts set sail from here in quest for the Golden Fleece. Despite its rich ancient history the modern city of Volos had to be rebuilt after two horrendous earthquakes back in the 1950s. The new city of Volos, with a buzzing University, a busy commercial and tourist port, a nearby airport and proximity to the main highway connecting Athens to Thessaloniki, is a national and international gateway.
