Little Train of Pelion

This day trip offers the chance to experience a ride on the famous train of Pelion, created in 1895. In this itinerary we can discover details of one of the most characteristic railway lines in the world (60 cm wide narrow gauge railway).

Α work by Evaristo de Chirico – the father of the famous painter Giorgio de Chirico – known for its high aesthetics and its architectural harmony, parts of which are the bridges we cross along our way.

We depart by bus from Volos or Agios Ioannis and go to Ano Lechonia. At the station of Ano Lechonia we board on the train and enjoy the one and a half hour adventure with the so-called “Mountzouris”, meaning in Greek " being covered with coal dirt" ( by the coals that used to be the fuel).

Having arrived at the railway station of Milies, we follow a path towards the village center, with its famous square and the exceptionally decorated -with wood carved interior- church.

Optionally we can continue by bus to Vizitsa, where we will have a traditional lunch and visit the traditional attractions of villages.

Return back to our place early in the afternoon. 

Prices include:
Transportation with minibus & the train's tickets
