The city was rebuilt with an urban planning, that’s why it’s a well laid – out city. The benchmark of the city is its waterfront promenade, a meeting point for the locals and visitors, where you can enjoy a leisurely coffee or go for a stroll. The city also has an Archaeological museum, a Roof Tile and Brickworks museum, and some worth seeing neoclassical buildings such as the Volos University Library, the Municipal Conservatory of Volos, the Spirer Building, the Railway Station building, and more.
