Right after that, in about 2 km distance only, you will visit Margarites village where you will have free time for a lunch or a walk.

The trip is not over yet… Let’s go to an olive oil manufactory. You will have the opportunity to learn how Cretan people did olive oil in the past time and to see the evolution until nowadays and, of course, you will tate it!!!
