What a wonderful place this was to visit. So friendly and helpful. I brought the oils home, and I am sad they don't yet ship to the US. Hope to return again.

This family owned museum was a real working olive press and the owner is there to explain how the olives were pressed and the oil extracted. It's a real treat and a learning experience as well.

I am not sure. We rented a car for 50 USD a day from Agia Anna. We stayed at Step by Step Studios, which I highly recommend.
