What to Expect
You’ll meet your guide at the tour office, which is the starting point for your 2-hour guided walk through Alberobello. This lovely picturesque town, considered the trulli capital, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
Trulli are unique dry stone houses topped with cone-shaped roofs that derive their name from the Greek word for cupola. Your Alberobello tour includes a visit to the interior of an old trullo.
See the town’s only 2-story trullo, the Trullo Sovrano. From here you’ll walk to the main church, Chiesa dei Santi Medici Cosma e Damiano.
Continue on to the central area known as Aia Piccola, where there are nearly 400 trulli, many of which are still inhabited.
Visit Casa D'Amore, the first house built in this area with mortar and then head to Terrazzino Belvedere, where you’ll have a panoramic view of the 1,000 trulli of the Rione Monti.
Stop at the trullo Church of Sant'Antonio, in Rione Monti, before enjoying free tastes of local specialties and some time to take a walk through this picturesque neighborhood.
