November is traditionally the month of the blessed olive tree. It is the month when its fruit is ready to produce the fine Mediterranean olive oil. Olympia, set among quiet meadows of luxuriant olive trees, is the place where the first Olympic Games took place. These games were held to honor god Zeus as part of a religious festival and the Olympic winners were crowned with an olive wreath. On your Olympia tour through the region, you will explore not only the birthplace of the Olympic Games, Ancient Olympia, but also the fruits of its land. So, join us as we celebrate November!
