The name Alberobello literally means beautiful tree because it was the area where the beautiful gigantic oaks were. A quirky historical town that is famous for its traditional white washed cone-shaped trulli. In the summer, Alberobello hosts a number of traditional cultural festivals such as folk music and dance. In the center of the historical town is the Basilica, Trullo Sovrano, and the trullo church of St. Antony.
Trulli was first constructed in the 16th century to evade land tax. The agricultural farmers first invented it as a temporary shelter to avoid land tax and made it easy to dismantle and build it again. The white-wash cone shaped unique trulli are built with limestone and can be seen dotted across the Apulia region. As part of the tour, our guide will explain how these UNESCO houses are build and their construction techniques.
After a historical tour around Alberobello, you will visit a local dairy farm.
