Nice little room displaying the various tools used to make olive oil. The local guide explained the process and we were then invited to buy the local olive products and there are plenty of them. We also got to taste olive oil cake.

This was worth a stop if it’s on your way. The women who work here were lovely and sweet and the ten minute “tour” was a nice addition to our shopping experience.

Cute museum, super helpful staff that show their passion throughout. Loads of tasters at the end and we stayed longer to have some delicious coffee accompanied by diary free olive oil cake! Great stop if you’re driving through the small towns in Naxos.

We rented an ATV (or quad bike). It's really the best way to get around. A scooter is also an option. During our day exploring the island we didn't see a single bus!
