Very interesting small museum that shows you just what you need to know about olives. Cheap entry fee (€5 and €2,50 for child/student) and small enough to capture your attention. Handsome shop too. And there is that Italian elegance to it...!

Very good museum. This private initiative is very admirable. The museum is very well done and has a wide and excellent collection. It gives a lot of information on olive oil and olives.
