We just walked into the town. It was Sunday and the shops were closed, but we followed a walking route marked on a map, which we got from the port, along the shopping area. We went into the Cathedral and saw a number of other things marked on the map. We then went down to the seafront that was very busy and touristy, we headed back into the town and walked back that way. We found a lovely bar were we had a large latte in the morning, so went back for a couple of beers on the way back. I think it was called 'Cafe de Paris'. There were shuttle buses, but it was not far and we would have to have paid more for the tickets than a taxi would have cost so we did not get tickets. We were quite happy walking anyway as we saw things on the way there and on the way back. Read Less

Meteora is a must. These are huge, high rocks, crowned at their top by monasteries built since the Middle Ages. Differently, go to mount Pelion, place of the mythical centaurs, swim in Makrynitsa and certainly eat in a Greek taverna.

Don't miss visiting Meteora, a one-of-a-kind spectacle in the world, where monasteries dating to 14th century are amazingly built at the top of huge Canyon-style rocks. You can also visit mount Pelion, where natural beauty meets rich ancient Greek mythology, as the mountain of Centaurs. According to Greek mythology also, the Argonauts started their journey to find the Golden Fleece from nearby Iolkos. In the port of Volos there is a nice reproduction of an ancient Greek 'pentekontoros', a warship with fifty oarsmen, reminding of the mythological Argo ship. If you are not the shore-excursion type, Volos has a nice promenade by the sea for strolling or having a coffee or lunch in one of the many cafes or restaurants there. Cunard offered a free shuttle from the ship. Read Less

We took an excellent taxi tour to the beautiful, mountain village of Makrinitsa. It was arranged by Volos VIP Taxi, with a very nice young man, Christos, as the driver. This was an enjoyable respire from more intensive touring.

Pick a cafe, sit down and have a wonderful lunch. Then afterwards, go to the bakery directly next to Sugar and have baklava with cream ice cream; simply amazing!!!

We passed through Volos on our way to Meteora. I was underwhelmed by Volos but Meteora Monasteries was well worth the $90 excursion cost. The ships excursion was well organized and the guide was well informed that spoke excellent English. The monasteries dramatic and are not to be missed. My only regret is that we did not have an opportunity to tour the Monastery where the James bond movie was filmed and instead spent time at a tourist trap at the end of the tour. Read Less
