Time Out says
The Ancient Romans processed olive oil in Pula and here, at the House of Istrian Olive Oil near the Arena, you can see how this was done 2,000 years ago. Compared with production today, the only difference is in the technology – the tastes, aromas, chemical compositions and health benefits remain pretty much the same, as a visit here will reveal. Find out from an expert as they show you how to recognise top-quality extra virgin olive oil, an Istrian speciality. Leading brands are available in the museum shop, along with truffles, lavender and Mediterranean plant-based cosmetics.
