We visited the Trulli's in Alberobello last September and this was a highlight of our entire trip to Puglia. These small white stone buildings with their domed stone roofs are a treasure to behold. We were truly impressed with how well these old buildings have held up and been maintained through the centuries. Clean and freshly whitewashed, they almost appear as if they had been recently constructed. Invited to visit inside, we were amazed at the details of the brickwork forming the arched separations between the small rooms and the interior design and structure of the domed roofs. The number of these Trullis - an entire village of them - was also surprising. Seeing the Trulli's was worth the trip to Puglia.

Alberobello is an authentic village where the original trulli architecture is fully preserved.
No other place in the world gives you the feeling of being part of a fairytale.
The inhabitants are happy to share their childhood stories and welcome us tourists as visiting friends.
The houses are decorated with flowers and architectural details; each room is a distinct trullo with its characteristics.
On our way from Fasano to Alberobello we have stopped in the “canale di Pirro” to enjoy the beauty and the serenity of its country side.

The lovely town / village with the NICEST name in Italy, is one of the nicest places we have visited during our wonderful trip in the province of Puglia, the district that is rich in amazing sites.
The trolley houses with the conical roofs are very reminiscent of dwarf houses in children's books.
The most amazing thing about the trolley houses is that although they are built of stone only without the use of cement at all !!!.
This is particularly evident in roofs made of slate stones and also not using cement.
What holds the roof is the self-weight of the tile and the exact distribution of gravity in each layer. Also, what holds the roof structure is the form of construction partially overlapped with each row (circle) of the slate bricks.
The reason for the construction of the trolley structures in this way is to allow the "demolition" of the building in a noticeably short time, immediately upon receiving the warning that tax collectors are on the way to the village.
The "demolition" process was extremely fast, and the rebuilding was truly short.
This process of demolition / rebuilding of the homes saved the local Feudal from paying the central government tax.
Currently, most residential buildings are now used as "shops" for selling souvenirs to tourists or for the hospitality (paid) of tourists who wish to see the lifestyle of the locals.
In conclusion, it is highly recommended to spend a few hours touring and strolling in this amazing town.
Highly recommended !
Do not miss out !

We love that Puglia is so authentic. It has not compromised for the tourists they now encourage and welcome.

The one exception we find is Alberobello’s città dei Trulli. Not the UNESCO World Heritage Site that stands out on its own. Our problem with Alberobello starts with when we explore via Monte S. Michele and via Monte S. Gabriele.

Pestered as we wonder up and down the wonderful vistas to come inside each and every trullo to buy their overpriced pasta, dried chilli, dish towels, olive oil and other tourist tat (snow globes, anyone?) Our experience is beyond spoiled. It’s destroyed.

We may eat authentic cuisine. But unlike almost everywhere else it isn’t offered at authentic prices. The simplest of dishes is overinflated for the bus loads of tourists that visit.

The Valle d’Itria is peppered with wonderful trulli. Try for example the breath of fresh air that is Costa dei Trulli Ripagnola. After sucking up and being sucked dry by no more than 2 hours in Alberobello...

This old town full of Trullis was very unusual and beautiful. I seacrhed on it online prior to visiting Italy and they looked very beautiful. I booked a truulli to stay and loved the Old town full of trullis. During Christmas they has parades and light decorations and full of local tourists.
You can pick a map from the Tourist ofice or your Trulli and walk up and down the various alleys where the trullis have been doecrated differently. It is such a quaint place.

Since 1996 this has been a UNESCO World Heritage site and located south east of Bari in the Puglia region. This village is like stepping into a fairytale. The houses are made from limestone with conical roofs and white painted walls and quite cool inside. Many of these have now became tourist shops but many are still lived in. Walking through this town there are red hearts everywhere. Love is in the air ❤️❤️❤️. We really enjoyed our visit here and won’t forget it in a hurry.

We came with low expectations and we were impressed. Beautiful and quiet place, around the trulli density area.

You can walk and enjoy and you can observe many souvenir places, arts and specifics to the place.

Not too many restaurants and some of them closed noon time.

You can relax and enjoy for 2-3 hours, but not less.

We have visited his historic area of Italy for the trulli homes which have cone-shaped rooves made of stones. Trulli masters have perfected this craft since the 1500s or possibly earlier in order to avoid taxes on the homes by the King. You can rent many of these and they are beautiful and charming, like fairy-tale living.

We strolled through this town with a guide who explained the history of the Trulli which was to build the houses without mortar so they wouldn't be taxed by the count. At one point we were able to go inside a Trulli and visit with the lady who lived there. This town is a must see if you are in this area.

Just so so pretty! Clear blue skies and hot sunshine makes the white trulli sparkle. This is definitely a must see if you are in Puglia. Yes the streets are narrow and crowded but people are respectful and do their best to give space. All shops(yes they are touristy shops but the produce is tasteful) have hand santitisers at the doors and people do wear masks if it is very busy. Go early or better still take a walking tour with a local to learn about why trullis exist and how they are built.
