Today we visit the historically beautiful town of Alberobello, Italy. Located in the province of Bari, it is home to roughly 11,000 people and has been made famous by the unique, fairytale-like Trulli architecture present in the city and surrounding countryside. The city was designated as a Unesco World Heritage site in 1996 and is quickly growing in popularity.
The Trulli houses are identifiable by their conical shaped roofs made of mortar. The collection of the 1500 Trulli buildings in such a small area truly makes for a memorable visit. Though it is growing in popularity, most of the international tourists do not venture this far southeast, opting instead for the well known tourist attractions on Italy’s west coast. Most of the tourists we came across were Italians. If you visit Alberobello, I recommend staying in one of the Trulli Houses – You can easily find available lodging on any hotel booking website. Also, walk the town at night. It is almost devoid of people and the surrounding atmosphere is magical. Tomorrow we will take a look at Alberobello at night so be sure to come back! Today, I have a collection of street captures for you to enjoy
