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).
Being a work by Evaristo de Chirico – the father of the famous painter Giorgio de Chirico is 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 to Ano Lechonia. We board the train and enjoy the 1:30 hour adventure with the famous “Mountzouris”, meaning in Greek ” being covered with coal dirt” (by the colas that used to be the fuel).
