Alberobello is so unique it has been designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site because of its famous trulli zones, that is areas of the famous peasant houses constructed from the local limestone in a dry stone fashion with conical roofs. These attract thousands of Italian visitors and a few international tourists eager to stroll around the narrow streets, visiting the myriad shops, bars and restaurants looking for those delightful photo opportunities.
Alberobello is just over 12 miles (30 minutes drive) from Fasano on the north coastal highway (SS16) which is itself about the same distance from Bari and Brindisi, and about 45 minutes drive (20 miles) from Taranto on the south coast of Puglia, so is relatively easy to get to, with an enjoyable drive through the beautiful countryside. Whichever way that you arrive you will see single and some double coned trulli dotted amongst the olive groves and farmland as you drive, but in Alberobello there are thousands of them, in the "Rione Monti" and the "Rione Aia Piccola" areas of the town, so just follow the signs to the "Zona Monumentale Trulli" and park where you can.
The town itself is quite small with under 12,000 inhabitants but this swells considerably in the high seasons and weekends with people keen to take a stroll through this delightful living monument. Once there everything is relatively close together and certainly all in walking distance, so bring your comfy shoes and camera and enjoy this enchanting experience!
