Dimini

Located just 5.3 km from the city of Volos, the neolithic settlement of Dimini was first inhabited at the end of the Bronze Age. Systematic excavations uncovered the remains of houses, an assortment of utensils, stone and bone tools for everyday use, and a multitude of pottery, figurines and jewellery; they stand as proof of the significant cultural development of the region. Just before the end of the fifth millennium BC, the whole area was deserted, ravaged by some kind of disaster a fire perhaps. After nearly 500 years, it got inhabited once again (mid-fourth millennium BC), covering only a limited area over the hill. This later settlement is believed by some scholars to have been the Homeric Iolcus.

Sesklo

Sesklo was first inhabited in the mid-seventh millennium BC. Around the mid-Neolithic (fifth millennium BC), the settlement occupied a large area of unprecedented proportions. Excavations have unearthed the remains of a palace and a castle. This period, named the "Sesklo civilisation", is characterized by the increase of the use of ceramics, a direct result of the significantly improved method of manufacturing them. Characteristic of the period is the extensive use of stone tools, as well as the use of obsidian from the island of Melos.

Archaeological Museum of Volos

The Archaeological Museum of Volos is one of the oldest museums in Greece. Built in 1909, it still is the most important archaeological museum in the region. Exhibits from excavations all over Thessaly, older (early and mid-20th century) as well as ongoing ones, are on show in the eight large rooms on the ground floor of the museum. They date from the Palaeolithic period to the Roman times, and there are informative texts, drawings and photographs, designed to enhance the visitors experience while at the same time providing authoritative information on each artefacts type and use, as well as extensive details on the sites where they come from.

Delphi

Built on the western slope of Mount Parnassus, at an altitude of 550m, Delphi has been described as a place of real positive energy, it is a cultural centre of worldwide fame. The view is magnificent, the climate is wonderful, and it is well-connected with all major cities in Greece. All the above make it a true Navel of the Earth.

The remains of the ancient city include some ruins of the Temple of Apollo, traces of the Iera Odos (the Sacred Way), as well as ruins of the treasures of the various cities: buildings where the city-states of ancient Greece kept heir offerings to the god and the Oracle. The Athenian Treasury is in surprisingly good condition. There are also the remains of the Gymnasium, the famous Castalian Spring Fountain, and the ruins of one of the most important sanctuaries of Delphi, that of Athena Pronaia.

The Delphi Museum, where the findings from the excavations of the whole area around Delphi are on show, consists of twelve large rooms, there are exhibits dating from prehistory to the Roman times, including pottery, figurines, sculptures, bronze weapons, tools, inscriptions, etc.
