I Trulli di Alberobello - World Heritage Site

A collection of 1,400 beehive buildings built and lived in by peasants.

Reviewed By CynthiaPittGal - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

This is the whole reason to visit this enchanting city. The Trulli UNESCO site is not to be missed. The walk around the village does not take long. Walk through with a guide if you can so you can get the full experience and education concerning the Trulli. Don’t miss the church at the top of the village. It’s worth the walk. There is a wonderful gelato store to refresh on the way down.

Antica Salumeria del Corso

Reviewed By amanda w

We ran in right when they were shutting down but they stayed open late to allow us to buy food. We bought local cured meats and cheeses. They let us try everything before we bought it. We also bought olives, artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes. It all was divine and made for a wonderful meal.

Parrocchia Sant'Antonio di Padova

Reviewed By Tony M - Malta

Whilst meandering around Alberobello, visited this church which is at the top of a hill and signposted from the valley below. Very plain inside but the centre altarpiece is colourful. Spent less than 10 minutes there and the church was empty.
Next door are public pay toilets if you need to use them and opposite is a garden which seemed to be popular with visiting children.

I'd say this museum os a good start of exploring Alberobello. It gives you basic understanding how people lived there and has a broad selection of guidebooks and cookbooks about Puglia and its cuisine.

Lovely looking church from the outside and there are interesting wood carvings inside the church. Definitely worth the short walk from the main square if only to enjoy the architecture of the church.

Cantina Albea winery and museum

Reviewed By Teri S

We booked this tour, through our hotel, Le Alcove. We were met by the owner, Tommy. He guided us through the entire winery. Our tour concluded with food and wines. We especially liked the Reservato, so much so, that we purchased a bottle in the restaurant, La Cantina, the following night for dinner. I purchased a bottle of Lui, to take back to the states. Thank you Tommy for great wine, food and tour. Hopefully I can be your U.S. contact for future distribution in the states.

If you are visiting Alberobello and wondering what these trulli are all about and how the town came to be, head up the hill to this low key museum. The museum has several displays explaining the history of the town and the area, and a nice film showing how the trulli are built and repaired. (English subtitles.) You can do a quick 20 minute walk-through of the parts that most interest you, or go through more slowly and read the displays in depth. In any case, don't miss the film. The price of admission includes admission to the Museo Dell'Olio (Olive Oil Museum) a few doors down on Via Verdi, which is also worth a quick visit.

Took shots of the Santa Lucia Church, by night, when we arrived in Alberobello. Would have loved to visit the interior too, but the next morning we were ready to hit other towns in Apulia.
