"Pelion Culture" is based in Volos, Thessaly, the port at the foot of Pelion Mt where the Argonauts set sail in quest of the Golden Fleece. While we provide tours to virtually anywhere in the country, our main area of operation and expertise is central and northern Greece, a culturally rich region that boasts a great number of UNESCO sites and monuments, the earliest farming communities in Europe (Sesklo, Dimini), significant recent archaeological discoveries, multicultural traditions, diverse architecture, and exquisite gastronomy.
