Alberobello – beautiful tree – is an amazing city located in the southern region of Italy in the Puglia Region. The trulli homes with their conical roofs became a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. When we booked our trip to Bari, I knew we had to stay in a Trullo so I quickly got to planning a stop in Alberobello. We ended up making this our ‘home base’ for 2 days as we wanted a day to explore this town, and the nearby cave town of Matera. We stayed in the cutest Trullo and had were so glad to have booked with the Tipico Resort. They gave us amazing restaurant recommendations, a full map/guide, helped us get free parking and breakfast in the morning was absolutely divine!
If you are heading to Alberobello, plan to have one full day to explore the city and see everything there is to see! While wandering the maze of streets and admiring the white washed Trulli homes you can also tour a Trulli Museum, the Basilica of Santi Medici, Casa D’Amore and several other museum and churches. Really though, just grab your bag and get lost in the maze of homes without needing to see anything! (My favorite way to explore a new place!)
The streets are lined with with shops, cafe’s so you can try homemade Lemoncello or purchase a miniature Trullo home. Kids can play at plenty of parks in town so Alberobello has things for everyone! I definitely recommend stopping and grabbing dinner at L’Aratro (a family restaurant always busy). Our meal was divine and the service was impeccable.
The Puglia region definitely has my heart!
