Introducing Larisa

Occupying the east bank of the ancient Pinios River, Larisa is a major transport, military and service hub for the vast agricultural plain of Thessaly. Despite its workaday feel, it is a vibrant university town, with bustling cafeterias, shops galore and numerous fountains. Larisa has been inhabited for nearly 10,000 years, and remnants of its layered Byzantine and Ottoman pasts are dotted about town.
