I'm going to be taking a bus to Ag Ioannis from Volos, and since the last one seems to be about 1:30 I'm thinking I should maybe get to Volos the night before. Also since I've never been to Volos I'm wondering if I should maybe spend 2 nights and look around a bit more.
How big is the Archaeology museum really? It seems like it says there are about 6 rooms. Is this a maybe half-hour or a few hours sort of place? (For someone who is a bit of an archaeology freak so I'll actually look at each case.)
Does visiting the local archaeological sites (Dimini, Sesklo, etc) require a car or are any of them easy by bus? Probably not if all the buses stop early, eh?
I see visits to Makrynitsa recommended - does this require a car?
Any other suggestions on where to go? I'll be near the beach for 9 days later so don't need to go on this day. I'm also interested in culture/ethnology/folk music and dance/mythology etc if that helps.
If I do rent a car for one day, how hard is driving in and out of Volos? Parking near the Archaeology Museum?
Thanks, I hope someone's still reading as this is a fairly quiet forum.
