Volos is a coastal port city in Thessaly situated midway on the Greek mainland, about 330km north of Athens and 220km south of Thessaloniki. Attractions like Mylopotamos Beach and Athanasakeion Archaeological Museum of Volos make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Volos: Agioi Saranta (in Chorefto), Matsopoulou Mill (in Trikala) and Platamonas Castle (in Platamon). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Roussanou Monastery, explore the ancient world of Dion Archaeological Park, steep yourself in history at Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), and examine the collection at The Rooftile and Brickworks Museum N. & S. Tsalapatas.
