If you want to get to know all about the unique features of olive oil or simply wonder what an olive-oil tasting seminar involves, this activity is right up your alley!
Olive grove (available all year round)
You’ll walk through the perennial olive trees and experience a guided 1 hour relaxing stroll through an olive grove in Kalamata.
During your walk, you’ll get acquainted with different varieties of olive trees in all shapes and of all ages.
Olive oil mill (depending on season & availability)
You will learn all about the extraction process, and if it is the olive harvesting season, you’ll get to taste fresh and warm extra virgin olive oil, directly from the separator!

To make your visit even more memorable, here are some tips:
I live in Kalamata since 2006 with my family which is the capital of Messinia region in the southwest Peloponnese. From the first time I came to this wonderful city, I was impressed of the harmonic combination of the rich architectural and cultural legacy with the modern way of life!
Kalamata for me is the ideal place to live not only as a single but also with your family. It offers a high quality of life, endless fascinating sites to visit, magical sandy beaches to swim, vast olive groves, hidden small villages to explore, and of course a unique gastronomy tradition!
I would definitely suggest it to every traveller and anyone who wishes to choose Kalamata as a place to live!
