Volos’ most popular spot both for locals and visitors is Argonafton Avenue, a pedestrian, coastal promenade with the imposing church of Agios Konstantinos (1936), the park bearing the same name, the old tobacco warehouse, home to the University of Thessaly, and the numerous cafés and taverns.

Along the promenade, there is the model of the “Argo” ship (Volos is intertwined with the story of Jason and the Argonauts), the port lying at the western tip of the town and the magnificent view to the open sea. East of the church of Agios Konstantinos lies the Anavros Park, an outdoor sculpture exhibition area, as well as the Archaeological Museum, a neoclassical building housing important findings from the wider region.

The Museum of Theofilos with frescoes painted by the this great folk artist is in the village of Anakasia (4.5 km from Volos). One of the most enchanting peculiarities of Volos is its renowned tsipouradika (places where a locally produced spirit, tsipouro, is served with appetizers).

Over 300 tsipouradika are scattered in Nea Ionia and Ano Volos (commanding a panoramic view of the area), in the traditional district of “Palea” (near the railway station), on the coastal avenue and in the historic center. Visitors have the opportunity to savor the locally produced spirit while indulging in delectable seafood dishes in a warm traditional setting.

A few km west of the town of Volos lie the archaeological sites of Sesklo and Dimini, two of the most ancient Neolithic settlements throughout Europe, while south of Ancient Demetrias (3rd – 2nd century BC) a well-preserved theatre along with the remains of a walled circuit and traces of a temple can be seen.

On the north, the imposing Mt Pelion, the mythological abode of the centaurs and one of the most magnificent and beautiful rocky masses throughout the country. On its slopes stand numerous traditional villages of vernacular architecture (most of them date from the 15th - 16th century), while in the vicinity of the village of Hania a modern ski center operates.
