Together with Lecce and Castel del Monte, it is one of the unmissable stages of any trip to Puglia. It is known throughout the world as the capital of the Trulli. The city is also well organized to accommodate many tourists who visit it every day. Alberobello is a great place hosting overnight groups as there are many hotels large enough to accommodate 40-50 people (the prices are reasonable and media services offered are very good) and also being more or less in the center of Alberobello in Puglia, it because easy to access many other fascinated cities. So on the same day you can also visit: Bari, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Monopoli, Polignano a Mare, Ostuni, Conversano, Egnazia, Gioia del Colle, Ostuni.
The service guide requires no less than two hours. Better to consider a half day. Should also be noted that the coaches have to be parked at a dedicated car park which is the monumental area about 15 minutes walk (and 15 back) For guide service contact Giampaolo +39 333 2637942 Email: email@example.com
Half day itinerary
We will visit the quarters Monti and Aia Piccola, which both consist entirely of Trulli. Can we visit the trulli also inside? Certainly, many trulli have become craft shops that are just waiting to welcome the tourists. We, however, if time permits, we will visit a Trullo belonging to my friends Grace and Pasquale, actually more to Grace than Pasquale because the ancient trulli were inherited through the female line: from mother to daughter. You will visit the Casa d’Amore (national monument) and end your visit at the Trullo-Church of St. Anthony. And it’s also possible (always if time permit) visit the Trullo Sovrano, the Museum of the Territory (charges apply) and the Church of Saints Cosmas and Damian.
Opening of the main monuments and fees
Alberobello in my opinion is not required to pay. Most of the trulli houses bars and souvenir shops will be more than happy to show their trullo for free.
It ‘s the largest trullo in Alberobello: interesting but not essential, it is a bit moved away from the monumental area and should be reached on foot. It can still be a nice visit.

La Casa Rossa
this building was used in Mussolini period as internment camp for: political opposer to Fascists, Jews, and all people not appreciated by the regime.
It is not possible to visit it inside.
The buses can’t come in the city center, they are required park near the Sport hall, (it is well indicated). You can park your car in a parking closer the city.
To reach the monumental area from the parking lot, you walk along a stretch of about 15 minutes which is not particularly difficult. Those who wish may use the shuttle for a fee (€ 1.00 each way), in my opinion not necessary.Address: Via Viterbo (near the sports hall)
