Italian Olive Oil : A healthy industry?

As an integral part of the Mediterranean diet, it did not take them too much time either to figure out that olive oil had beneficial properties.

A taste of Testaccio in Rome

Take the metro to Piramide to explore this lively, authentic Roman neighbourhood, which is still viewed by many as one of the best places to find true Roman cuisine.
