About This Experience

Deepen your appreciation for quality olive oil by participating in an olive harvest at a farm just 15 minutes outside of Matera! After being picked up from the center of Matera, you’ll head to a typical agriturismo where you’ll learn about its story. After a tour of the olive groves and learning all about how they maintain and grow their 3000 trees, you’ll be introduced to both the traditional and modern techniques for picking the olives. Equipped with the knowledge and instructions from your hosts, you’ll even get to have a go at it yourself! Then, you’ll take a short trip to the local olive press where you’ll see and learn everything there is to know about producing olive oil. After tasting the amazingly fresh olive oil, you’ll head back to the farm to linger over a homemade, multi-course Italian meal!
