Summer holidays are much more exciting if they are remembered during the cold season, like now! They do warm you up, right?
Well, having this in mind, this post is going to be about Alberobello (Bari, Puglia), which I visited this summer.
First some info about this lovely place:
`Alberobello, in the region of Puglia in southern Italy, is a strange and picturesque destination which is becoming an important fixture on the travel itineraries of tour operators as well as independent travellers. The small town has been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of trulli, the characteristic white-washed conical-roofed houses of the area. It makes an interesting day-trip destination or a pleasant base for a few days – especially if you stay in a trullo of your very own.`(http://www.italyheaven.co.uk/puglia/alberobello.html)
Our trip was one day, but it was enough to see the most important part of it.
I must admit that my curiosity of sleeping in one of the trulli is still on and if I ever have the chance, I would love to be part of such an experience.
I loved the trullis. They are so tiny, cozy, unique, but I wander how comfortable are they? 🙂
Besides the lovely trullis i really enjoyed walking around up and down the narrow roads and seeing colored flowers and green vegetation. All these colors mixed with the sea of white and nudes, made the scenery even more perfect.
Of course after all that walking we had to have lunch. We enjoyed it on a terrace with a view.
I must say that we did eat extremely well in Puglia, but the size…..as you can see…is huge!!!
….all the time and desserts were no exception!
