It is constructed on the site of Ancient Iolkos, from where Jason sailed for the Argonautic expedition, according to mythology. In fact, at the edge of the port of Volos, there is a wooden model of Argo, the ship of Jason.
The beach promenade of Volos has many cafeterias and bars and it is the most popular spot of the town. It gets popular all year round due to winter holidays in the mountainous villages of central Pelion and summer holidays in southern Pelion. From the port of Volos, ferries to Sporades leave daily.
