Full description
Discover an olive oil tour in Central Greece and learn how to collect olives like the Greeks! The tours last 8 hours and take you through the history of olive oil. The olive oil tour is a guided tour consisting of a visit to an olive oil press and an experience in how to extract olives and make your own olive oil. At the start of the year, every family who owns a tree will typically have about 200 kg of olives waiting for use. There are many ways to use these olives, but there are two major ones: olive oil and ouzo. Wine is a traditional part of the Greek lifestyle. It's not only a drink but also an important part of their culture that they share with the rest of the world. The Greeks introduced wine to France and Rome in the 6th century BC, helping spread its popularity and making it available to everyone. The first bottle of wine was discovered in France by a farmer in the year 5000 BC and later on, it spread to Greece where it became common. It then took over Italy and made its way back to France. Wine's popularity has been widespread ever since.
