Alberobello is a very unusual and picturesque town in the province of Bari in Italy, known for its unique trulli buildings, which have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1996.

This village, which has about 11,000 inhabitants, with fairytale houses, is reminiscent of the “Trump” cartoon village.

It is currently a popular tourist destination for determining which visitors return more than 200 years back in time. Regardless of the fact that many homes are decorated with souvenir shops, museums or restaurants, this tourist spot has not become a stone backdrop. About 11,000 people live there, children play in the street, the windows are dry and the dogs are lying on the doors.

There are two settlements in the city: Monti and Aia Piccola.

Monti County is built on a fairly steep terrain, covers an area of ​​15 hectares and includes 1,030 huts.

It represents the first group of large and clearly recognizable huts in the city. It opens onto the hill like a fan, and is separated from the rest of the city by the Martellot etalite. All the roads down the hill are connected in one place to allow the water to disappear.

The neighborhood of Aia Piccola with its 590 buildings is another set of less homogeneous huts. Its huts were installed in a common era where in the past, from the end of the feudal era, the peasants had to boil it in public.

Numerous festivals are held in this city in the summer, and you can reach Bari by train in an hour and a half or by car in less than an hour.
