Alberobello, literally means beautiful tree and its name derived from the beautiful oak forest that was once the character of the area. Alberobello is famous for its traditionally built ancient white-washed stone houses, called the trulli. Today, Alberobello is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s history intermingles with feudal debates and disagreements over tax payment which ultimately resulted in the construction of the trulli.
Iconic cone-shaped houses built with limestone are the famous trulli found in the Puglia region. You will see trulli dotted across southern Italy. The traditional trulli were constructed as temporary shelters by the 16th-century agricultural laborers. As part of this tour, our guide will relate the historical facts of trulli, the techniques employed to construct these unique houses and the status symbols of the trulli.
After completing the guided tour, we will drive out to the countryside to our awaiting picnic to enjoy the Puglia products such as focaccia, cheese, beverages, Puglia bread and Puglia meat cuts.
