Alberobello

Alberobello is one of the most visited towns in Italy and was granted Unesco World Heritage site status in 1966. The old part of town, Monti, is filled with hundreds of the typical Puglian Trulli - the conical stone houses that can be found scattered throughout the Puglian countryside. Many of the Trulli have been converted to gift shops and restaurants and in high season the town becomes a very popular attraction for day trippers. The newer, more modern part of the town, Aia Piccola, has also been granted protected status and more restaurants and shops can be found here with slightly less bustling crowds.

Alberobello - Food & Dining

Alberobello has a great history of food with many traditional dishes still being served today in the great selection of ristaurantes and trattorias. Try the locally produced cheese "Burrata" which is a soft and creamy mozzarella-like cheese followed by orecchiette (small pasta shapes typical of the region) served with turnip tops or rabit ragu and sprinkled with toasted bread crumbs.

Alberobello - Excursions and Places of interest

Vineyards

Be sure to try some of fantastic local wines from the Primitivo grape. Many of the restaurants will serve local wines but for a truly unique experience you can also arrange to visit one of the nearby vineyards to see the production of the wine as well as tasting the final product.

Natural areas of beauty

Explore the beautiful valley of the Valle d'Itria by car, passing rolling countryside, vineyards and olive groves as you travel between the picturesque towns of Martina Franca, Ostuni, Cisternino, Ceglie Messapica and of course Alberobello.

Attraction parks

For a fun day out with the children, visit Zoo Safari Fasanolandia, just 20 minutes from Alberobello. The park includes a drive through safari park (be carefull if you have hired a car) as well as live animal shows and rides.

The old town

Wander the cobbled streets of the old town and marvel at the traditional Trulli houses, most of which are now small shops and boutiques where you can buy locally produced pasta and oil for you journey home. Or visit the central square and enjoy a coffee or aperitif in a café or bar before indulging in good Pugliese good in a trattoria or ristaurante.

Churches / Cathedrals

There are several churches to discover in this small town, including the church of San Antonio and the Cathedral of Alberobello which is located at the end of the main shopping street in the centre of the town.
