A relatively new city by Greek standards, Volos and surrounding Magnesia are steeped in history and myth, with Neolithic settlements dating to 7000 BC and tales of a visit from Jason and his Argonauts. Now a bustling port city, it derives much of its youthful energy from the student population at the University of Thessaly and from summer tourists seeking Mediterranean fun and sun.
