You’ll travel to Alberobello on our bus. Accompanied by a local guide, you’ll visit the two urban areas with the greatest number of trulli: Rione Monti to the south, where there are roughly a thousand trulli used as craft workshops, and Rione Aia Piccola, with around 400 units that are actual homes belonging to local inhabitants. These buildings, which are typically white, cylindrical and topped with a dome, date from the mid-14th century and have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An edict of the Kingdom of Naples levied a tax on every new building. This is how the idea of the trulli was conceived; as they were built without mortar, they were considered to be temporary constructions and therefore not taxable. The whiteness of the walls indicates purity and the whitewashed symbols on the dome indicate the family’s religion, while the shape of the overlapping stone pinnacles was the final touch that made your home unique and recognizable. We can’t leave Alberobello without tasting some orecchiette, the traditional Apulian handmade pasta, accompanied by a glass of wine.
