Thessaloniki itself never doubted its own Cultural identity and its millennia of existence, it stands there since 315BC named after Alexander’s the Great sister. Historically one of Europe’s oldest and most multiethnic cities, widely considered as the cultural capital of Greece, is truly unique in the sense that it intricately marries its thousands-year-old multicultural heritage and the architectural marvels with the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Sephardic Jew history. The cutting-edge art performances and cinematic avant-garde, Arts and Entertainment hubs all-in-one, numerous monuments, fifteen listed at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the 5km meandering waterfront, make Thessaloniki a “must-see destination”.


Volos is one of the largest and most attractive cities in Greece as well as one of the country’s most prominent ports. The modern-day city, built near the site of ancient Iolcos, dominates the region of Magnesia from its position at the foot of Mount Pelion overlooking the Pagasetic Gulf. This is one of the most beautiful areas in Thessaly, in the center of Greece combining the allure of the sea with the mystical charm of the Centaurs’ mountain. The sea creates a wonderful seafront with picturesque little restaurants, the famous tsipouradika, which is perfect when combined with seafood teasers. Follow the paved Argonauts Avenue on the seafront and relax with a stunning view to the open sea.


Pelion is a mountain in the heart on the Greek territory, very close to the city of Volos. It is a very smooth, quiet mountain without dangerous ravines or canyons, its close proximity to the sea makes it much more interesting. Beautiful landscapes, rich forested mountain slopes, villages hidden in verdure, steep gorges and cliffs, impressive mountains, melodiously flowing waters and charming beaches are just some of the features of the exquisite nature of Pelion. On summer, the mountain resembles paradise. The greenery offers breeze while the trees offer shade and rest, the wildflowers and herbs offer scent and accompany the walks while the beaches are filled offering to visitors lifetime swimming experiences.


Skiathos, the most cosmopolitan island in the Northern Sporades, is truly a paradise on earth, with lush pine forests and crystal-clear azure waters. The island is picturesque, unspoilt and blessed with more than 60 beautifully clean beaches. Natural beauty with stunning views of neighbouring islands, secluded beaches even in high season, a cosmopolitan nightlife, and superb Greek and international cuisine.
