UNESCO's Alberobello and Matera from Bari

48 reviews
With a private guide, visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in one day. First, explore Matera, including the Sassi area, a complex of cave dwellings carved into the mountainside. Nearby, rock churches house 13th-century frescoes. Then it’s on to Alberobello to see the Trulli, an awe-inspiring collection of mortarless limestone dwellings, a prehistoric building technique still used in the region.

The only two storey trulli is situated away from the main area of densely packed trulli buildings. When we arrived in Alberobello we initially thought that this was kind of “it” until we walked further down the hillside & were met by the amazing sight of the actual trulli village....spectacular! Do take your time to look at this little museum before you head off to the main area because it’s restored inside & gives you a good insight in to what life was like living in such a place. In addition this part of Alberobello is less tacky, less of a tourist trap than the part closer to the main trulli village.

This trullo was built in the 18century and furnished accordingly. It’s fascinating to see how much space there was in this trullo in the downstairs, and then ascend to see the two top rooms. An interesting insight into this trullo for a genteel inhabitant.

The Trullo Sovrano is two-story trullo house that is now a museum. While in Alberobello, I met a woman, now in her 70s, who was born in the house. The first floor bedroom still has family pictures. The cost of the ticket is worth the visit. The house is filled with artifacts and each has a written explanation. It can be crowded with visitors and the climb to the second floor has a narrow staircase. There is also a good book store on the first floor where you can purchase books about the area in many languages.

Take your time in visiting this little gem of history. For 1 1/2 € you can get a very good education in the ancestry of the Truilli’s and Alberobello. The house is reconstructed inside so that you can see how the inhabitants lived. Take enough time to read the various explanations (in English) in each room.

Entry is 1.50 Euro to this 2 story museum which shows the history of the house, which is excellent. It is a UNESCO heritage area all of it's own! You can even sit in the garden with a glass of wine and soak up the sun. Not to be missed.
