Full-Day Santorini Island Trip from Crete

37 reviews
Swap an independent ferry trip to Santorini from Crete for a full-day tour that includes a cruise and sightseeing once you’re there. Avoid the hassle of arranging your own cabs or buses on the Cycladic island; and simply sit back and admire its whitewashed clifftop towns as you sail the caldera. Then, enjoy a coach tour with time to stroll in the capital, Thira; Oia, and along the island’s clifftops.

The Olive Tree Museum is located in Ano Vouves about 7 km South of Kolimbari. The museum gives an overview about olive tree history in Crete. Also a historical overview is given. Amazing is the ~3.500 years old olive tree in front of the museum.

Very low key and the tree is simply incredible looking. The little museum is quaint and there is a nice little coffee shop next door. But really, the draw is the tree. Ive never seen anything like it. Imagine everything it has seen and endured...

You notice the wingspan of history as you stand by this ancient olive tree, thinking that it was there long before Jesus Christ

A must-to-visit place. So usual and so unusual. A hidden pearl. It is unbelievable that this oldest olive tree is over 3000 years old and still give fruits. The silent witness of the start of Iron Age and times with only 50 million people on Earh! The tree was donated by a Greek family to local community a few generations ago. Currently this family runs a cosy caffee. I strongly recommend to spend there a few moments drinking fresh juice from local oranges and delecting Olive oil cake.
