The Rione Monti neighborhood in Alberobello’s historic center contains more than 1,000 trulli, and the Trullo Sovrano towers above its neighbors with a roof more than 45 feet (14 meters) tall. Kids especially enjoy experiencing what it was like to live inside the humble, fairy-tale-ready cottage.
Visit the Trullo Sovrano during a walking tour of Alberobello that takes in neighborhood highlights, or on your own by purchasing a skip-the-line ticket in advance. Alberobello day trips and tours often include stops in nearby Locorotondo, Polignano a Mare, Conversano, or the Castel del Monte fortress.

When to Get There
Alberobello is one of the most famous destinations in Puglia, and gets overrun with bus tours at midday. Stop by in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the worst of the crowds.
The Trulli of Alberobello
Alberobello’s round trulli—whitewashed cottages topped with conical slate roofs marked with runelike designs—are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the top attractions in Itria Valley. Nowadays, the trulli include souvenir shops, restaurants, cafés, and holiday homes.
