Shopping in Thessalia Region - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

In truth, Thessaly is not a very suitable place for shopping. An exception to this can be your purpose to buy a fur coat. If it is exactly your case, then it makes sense and you can safely come to Thessaly, here you will be taken to one or to several factories, where at a reasonable price you will have a chance to choose the model fitting you. You can participate in a special fur coat tour or go for a specialized excursion directly from Thessaly.
The people of Thessaly are rather conservative, and frequently, especially in the settlements distant from the large cities, they neglect the achievements of civilization. For tourists, it … Open
For sure, there are shopping centers in Larissa which is the capital and largest city of Thessaly region, but they are not so huge like in Athens, for example. Still, during the period of discounts of a summer season, it is quite possible to purchase high-quality designer brands for a very low price in Thessaly. We recommend visiting this region in case if you want to buy good vintage wine and food products since with good reason Thessaly is considered to be the breadbasket of the country. The local wine is the best one in Greece; you need to try it and you can buy it as a gift or a souvenir, also you can bring this great spirit in order to enjoy it simply at home.
You can participate in the excursions organized to the local vineyards, where you will have an opportunity to taste different types of wine and to buy the ones you like. The vineyards of Mesenikolas produce very good wine, the red wines from this region are just unique. If you want to buy it, you do not necessarily go to the vineyard itself since in Trikala you can find the wines of this manufacturer in the specialized shops. Tyrnavos and Anchialos are also famous for their wines of high quality. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The wine from the island of Skopelos, called Skopelitico, is the national heritage of Thessaly; this wine is worthy of the gods and we highly recommend to buy at least one bottle. Among strong beverages, you will certainly need to buy tsipouro, because it is the main alcoholic drink of Thessaly, and here it is much more popular than ouzo or raki.
Greece by boat Karditsa is famous for its excellent dairy products. Of course, there is no point to take yogurt along with you, but the local cheeses are surely worth purchasing. First of all, you can buy feta cheese, this will be a great gift for your friends.
The first association, which comes to your mind when you say ‘Thessaly’, is the mountains. Mountaineering and rock climbing are really well-developed here. It is possible to climb … Open
In Volos, most of the stores are located along the pedestrianized streets; however, if your purpose is shopping, it will not be the right decision to come here since there are no famous brands or designer boutiques in the city. The presented clothing brands include Marks & Spencer, DOCA; leather accessories and clothes can be bought at affordable prices in the store called Leather 100. There are quite a lot of stores here, and if you are looking for something different, it is possible to buy interesting things of high quality at a reasonable price. By the way, there is a big beauty store in Volos, actually, this kind of shops is found rather rarely in Greece.
Skiathos harbour The local cosmetics are of very high quality, it is especially worth mentioning the products based on olive oil. Although the clothes choice here can hardly be called great, the number of stores offering various handicraft goods is really good and it appears that in this regard Volos is ahead of any other city in the region. Here you can find interesting jewelry items made of silver and gold, amazing ceramic products, high-quality leather goods, and, of course, a lot of various souvenirs.
1. To begin with, Thessaly is not located in the tropics, there is the change of seasons in this region, in summer the temperature is about 30 degrees Celsius, and in winter, it is about 10 … Open
Be sure to buy some local products, especially sweets and chocolate. In Volos, you can find jams, preserves and excellent honey made at small productions, as well as unusual filled cheeses. As for sweets go fo hand-made chocolates, traditional baklava, halva, and very tasty crisp cookies called kourabiedes. It goes without saying that Thessaly is a place from which you need to bring olives and, of course, olive oil!
Farewell to Skiathos Ceramics is a separate subject. Not far from Volos, you can find small fairs where the local potters offer their products. You can purchase several pieces as a gift or as a memento of your journey. The copperware of high quality will also be a good reminder of the region. We highly recommend to get a good look at cotton products, they are a real honor to Thessaly. If you have a trip to the Meteora Monasteries, it will make sense to bring a small icon or a cross.
The most popular beaches of Thessalia are concentrated in Volos Prefecture, as well as in the capital region and its immediate environs. Within the city of Agria the rocky beach of Barba … Open
In general, in Thessaly, there are many shops that sell religious paraphernalia and icons, drawn in the Byzantine style. A great number of such shops is located in the places frequented by tourists and in the neighborhood of the main religious attractions.
Outside view of the Kassandra Bay, Family Hotel & Resort In Larissa, the center of trade is the pedestrial area of the city, most shops and boutiques are concentrated here. In truth, Larissa is the only city in the region where you can find shopping centers. Indeed, you will have to wander for a while, but if the desire exists, you can buy almost anything here.
