Decided to make the drive over to the tree to see one of the oldest olive trees in Greece. I believe the tree dates back to 3000BC. Good parking. Nobody but us there at that time. There is a museum next door but didn't go...More

Nice place to visit for an hour or so. Lovely food served in cafe. Not much to see or do but if you have a spare hour worth going to see the really old olive tree and have something to eat and drink.

After consuming daily doses of olive oil, it was very informative to learn more and see the oldest olive tree. A scenic drive and a nice place for a quick visit.

The Olive Tree Museum of Vouves is located near the Monumental Olive Tree of Vouves in the settlement of Pano Vouves, thus creating a uniform and harmonious ensemble.

Get a life. It's a tree, an old one that's it. The area as a whole has nothing to do - hence making a big deal out of an old tree! I would not return to this part of Crete

A nice trip if you are close by to have a break and coffee. A stunning tree of course and the history around it. Great trip to combine if you're visiting the nearby Terra Creta oliveoil factory.

What an amazing olive tree. Over 3000 years old and massive. The museum next to it was closed but looked very clean and the tree had a nice billboard full of information. Looks like there was a small tavern next to it as well.

Be there as early as you can to enjoy the serenity and birds' singing. The place gets crowded around 12 o clock. The little museum is open past 9. Make sure to visit the interior room and the new room made in 2009. Remember to...More
