The Basics

Stroll through the historic Rione Monti neighborhood on Alberobello’s western hilltop to take in the clusters of trulli, estimated to number around 1,000. Walking tours wind through the pedestrianized old town, a warren of narrow lanes lined with these traditional limestone dwellings. The trulli date as far back as the 14th century and sometimes stand alone, but are often adjoined from the inside to form larger homes, shops, and restaurants.

Most walking tours also stop at the trullo-style Sant’Antonio Church and the Trullo Sovrano, the only 2-story trullo structure, which now houses the local museum. Tours of Alberobello often include nearby highlights such as Locorotondo or sights just outside the Itria Valley, such as the Castel del Monte fortress and the towns of Polignano a Mare and Conversano.

This was an amazing tour that took us to many of the highlights of Bari. Our tour guide, Vito, presented the tour in an exceptionally interesting and informative way. Well versed on the Bari area. This was a full day tour that covered it all.

Locorotondo

To escape the crowds in Alberobello, head to the sleepy historic center of Locorotondo, a hilltop village of whitewashed palazzi and churches overlooking the Murgia Plateau. Highlights include the Madre San Giorgio and San Nicola churches, and the area is known for its wine and olive oil production, centered in the wineries and olive farms in the surrounding countryside.
