Once you've picked up your vehicle, getting to Volos itself is a straightforward affair. Simply head north for a few miles until you reach the E030 highway and head straight on along this coastal stretch of road until you enter the vicinity of Volos. Should you require parking facilities in this vicinity, there's ample facilities at this airport, although fees are considerably higher than everyday parking costs. Those who've made a maritime journey to Volos can also enjoy minimal fuss when collecting their rental. After disembarking at port, this branch is just a few strides away. Keys collected, you're good to go. It's worth noting that the road layout of inner Volos is rather dense, with many road intersections that can mean frequent stops and starts. If you're looking to make tracks and venture on to your next destination, the Analipseos is only a short distance away. Once you're free of inner Volos and have merged onto this route, you'll be cruising along nicely, making navigating great distances relatively simple. If you're still unsure of tackling unfamiliar routes, make a note to ask about Sat Nav add-ons before you finalise your rental vehicle booking. Volos also enjoys links to the northern and southern regions of Greece via the E75 highway. Although there's a healthy amount of parking spaces within Volos itself, competition for available spots might provide frustrating in peak traffic hours. Off-road car parks are a better alternative if you're having no luck finding a free spot on the street.
The Greek coast is littered with popular tourist resorts, stunning beaches and shorelines, not to mention historic cities dating back millennia. Despite the competition however, Volos stands proud alongside its fellow settlements along the Pagasetic Gulf. Besides being one of the most visually stunning cities in mainland Greece, Volos has a rich history and heritage spanning back thousands of years. In fact, its very foundations are built atop the remnants of even more ancient settlements. It's also long been a city acknowledged for its wealth and prosperity, with its good fortunes continuing on into the present. Today, it's a cosmopolitan centre with a star on the rise, where contemporary skylines and centuries-old architecture tower triumphantly alongside each other, trendy eateries are established alongside long-time seafood staples, and culture in all its forms is devoured by locals and visitors alike.

If you're tired of second-rate sightseeing tours, put your rental to good use and get out and explore the very best that Volos and the surrounding area has to offer. From the comfort and convenience of your car hire on Volos, you're free to take your pick from a premier list of jaw-dropping landmarks. This stretch of Greece is renowned for its coastal beauty, but some stretches are more spectacular than others. One such example is Pelion, a mountain in Thessaly that stands as a mammoth peninsula dividing the Pagasetic Gulf and Aegean Sea. It's a perfect place for capturing panoramic snaps of your Greek getaway, while the surrounding area is a natural wonder in and of itself.
There's no shortage of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece and one of the most mesmerising is within very comfortable driving distance from Volos. Meteora, a striking rock formation in the heartland of the country, not only impresses with natural spectacle, but also serves as the location of one of a monastery complex. No less than six Eastern Orthodox monasteries perch atop the towering natural formations, with each one looking almost as impossible as the last. You'll likely never take in a sight like this again.
While tourism accounts for a healthy slice of Volos' economy, it's the industrial activity of this coastal city that proves it a powerhouse. Steel and cement are big business here, while the science and research sectors are also heavily represented. Seminars and conferences are commonplace for many key industries rooted to the region, with the likes of the Holy Metropolis of Demetrias Conference Centre serving as popular venues.
