The Olive Route resembles both the Silk Road and the Spice Route in that the epic adventures involving the transportation of its produce are highly colourful, intriguing and sometimes bloodthirsty. They embody the entire history of the Mediterranean and its diverse peoples. From the Levant on the eastern coast of its ancient sea, to its western shores, the olive tree is farmed.
