    Discovering Alberobello and its Trulli

Discovering Alberobello and its Trulli

  • City: Alberobello
  • Duration: Approximately 2 hours.

Overview

A dazzling, luminous light floods the Apulian plateau, red earth on white limestone. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, Alberobello is a fascinating mix of history and architecture in the heart of Apulia. The perfect route to discover the most beautiful corners of the Capital of the Trulli starts from the Terrazzino Belvedere. Here, enjoying a splendid view over the Old Town, dominated by conical-roofed trulli adorned with mysterious symbols drawn in lime, you will immediately understand why Alberbello is one of the world's unique places.

The tour continues with a visit to the Old Town center, referred to as Aia Piccola. It consists of about 400 trulli, for the most part still used as dwellings. With a little luck you can still admire ladies working the dough to make the famous Apulian pasta, orecchiette, or master artisans working stone, strictly by hand, for the restoration of the trulli. A stop to sample local food products provides a delicious taste of Apulia.

Walking through the narrow streets of town, you will come to the so-called House of Love, symbol of Alberobello's freedom from feudal vassalage and the first house to be built with the use of mortar and without the classic trullo shape.

The tour ends in the historic district of Monti, which boasts has more than 1,000 trulli in seven different building styles. Here is the Sovereign Trullo, the most advanced example of a two-story trullo where among fireplaces, kitchen tools and looms, you can still feel the atmosphere of an older, simpler time.
