Are you short of time and you want to have a private tour with a local, experienced and licensed Tour Guide? Don't miss the chance to enjoy a guided tour in the Archaeological museum of Volos and Makrinitsa village in Mount Pelion.

During your stay in the museum you will see objects and hear stories from people who lived in one of the earliest Neolithic villages to the hero Jason, who started the Expedition of Argonauts, till the cemetery of the ancient city of Demetrias.

Then, you will reach the village of Makrinitsa. Mount Pelion and its villages may not be the most famous place in modern world, but in the ancient world it was for sure! So many mythological stories took place there.

During this tour, I will be guiding you in the hidden beauties of the village with the luxurious mansions, old churches, drinking fountains and cobbled streets. Drink your Greek coffee or taste the local cuisine in the shade of the plane trees.

Itinerary

Our first stop is the archaeological museum where we will stay for approximately 1hour. Don't miss the chance to learn more about ancient Greece far away from the crowds.

The distance between Volos and Makrinitsa is about 30-40 minutes.

We will spend the rest of our time in Makrinitsa for a walking tour and coffee or lunch time. If you have religious interests we can also visit the Byzantine museum full of ritual treasures of the village.

Charge your cameras and be ready to enjoy the picturesque Greece.
