In Alberobello you’ll find a whole town full of stone dwellings known as ‘trulli’, almost unreal looking, like a film set. Your guide will take you on a walking tour of Alberobello and explain the ancient origins of these adorable little buildings, which date back to around the 16th century. In order to avoid tax burdens for the village foundations, the Count of Conversano asked peasants to build dry stone roofed houses, which were easily dismantled in case of a Royal Inspection. Look out for the ancient symbols on the roofs, which indicated which family the ‘trullo’ belonged to.

You’ll have free time in Alberobello to explore the twisted cobbled streets at your leisure, browse the small shops or relax in a local café and soak up the atmosphere.
