Description

Meet your private guide at the cruise port of Bari and depart for a 50-minute drive through the South inland to Alberobello. Along the way you will pass by Trulli houses, with their unique design. In Alberobello, the guide will lead you to a walking tour by a small village. See the enchanting Trulli with their whitewashed walls and grey pointed roofs, which are the unmistakable symbol of this village.

The "Trulli", limestone dwellings found in the southern region of Puglia, are remarkable examples of drywall (mortar less) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The Trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders collected from neighbouring fields. This small and lively city is an exceptional example of vernacular architecture - one of the best-preserved and most homogeneous urban areas of this type in Europe. Its special features, and the fact that the buildings are still occupied, makes it unique. It also represents a remarkable survival of prehistoric building techniques.

Before returning to Bari your will have some free time to explore on your own or check out the best places to shop with your guide.
