Are you looking for something unique and different for your vacation? Well, this family experience is totally for you. Located in Eggares Olive Press Museum, one of Naxos’s oldest remaining olive mills, and specially designed for our little friends and the whole family. We will make a dive in Ancient Greece talking about the importance of olive oil and the sacredness of the olive tree, through the myth of Athena and Poseidon. Did you know that Athens had a different name before this one? And how Athena became the protector of the city? Did she fight with her shield or with her wisdom? Well, let's find out together through these magnificent ancient myths.
After our tour and games inside the museum, time for action. In our beautiful garden we can become real farmers and plant our very own vegetables. Also what about making a fresh and cool salad combined with our traditional Naxian olive oil? Just be careful not to overdo it with the bread dips!
Do you have any idea what games children in Ancient Greece used to play? Most of them remain till these days and actually have really funny ancient names. Are you ready to play and wear the famous “kotinos” (olive wreath) of our very own Naxian Olympic games? Just remember, in our experience everyone is a winner.
Time for relaxation and crafting. Using our imagination and inspired by the previous activities we can use oil colors and brushes to create our own piece of art on a canvas made of burlap. Fan fact, burlap is the material used for olive picking.
We are looking forward to meeting you and creating an unforgettable experience together!
