The town's port is the region's only access to the sea and the town is the capital of the Magnesia region. Volos' port is one of the newest ports in Greece with many of its buildings being constructed after 1955, when an earthquake destroyed much of what was there before. The University of Thessaly is located in the city which is also a centre for manufacturing, services and tourism for the region. The city played an important role in the 2004 Olympic Games as since then has also hosted other athletic events such as the European Athletics Championships. The city also hosted the 7th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in July and August 2013.

The city is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Greece and its long history can be seen in its buildings. The many mansions, municipal buildings, museums, early 20th century industrial buildings and lovely churches all combine to make Volos a place worth visiting.

Glossa Guide

Located on the Greek island of Skopelos, one of the Northern Sporades group of islands, is the town of Glossa which is the island's second largest town. It is around 25 km to the north of the island's capital called Hora. Glossa is characterised by its traditional charm and the ruins of ancient towers and buildings that have been discovered around the area. Papadiamantis called Glossa "the tall village", perhaps because it is located in the mountains and is around 300 meters above sea level and commands lovely views and has managed to remain largely unspoilt. The town has many narrow streets where it is common to still see women dressed in traditional outfits called "foustanes".

The town's narrow streets, typical Macedonian houses, with two floors, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, is regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Sporades group of islands.

Skopelos is connected by ferry to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, Skiathos, Alonnisos and Thessaloniki during the summer.
