Full description
Start your day by meeting your driver in the center of Matera before departing by minivan for your day tour. After a short, scenic drive you will reach Alberobello. Alberobello guided tour will start from the Aia Piccola, UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the heart of the town of the trulli. Trulli are traditional houses built entirely of stone without mortar or cement. Every year thousands of tourists can see the old city and visit the trulli with the tools of rural life in the early 1900s. The visit will take place in the historic center through a path in the narrow streets of the historic center, with a visit to the trulli and neighborhoods of Aia Piccola and Monti. You will visit the ancient church of St. Anthony, the only church in the world to the shape of trullo, opened to the public in June 1927. You'll find the inside of the Sovereign Trullo (housed in the museum) where you can see the decor typical start of the century 1900s. Declared a italian national monument in 1923, was so named because it houses the Blessed Sacrament and the relics of St. Cosmas and Damian, the patron saints of the city.

Our day trip was great, we were brought to alberobello in a very comfortable minivan with AC. Our driver was Conny. The journey there and back was great. The walking tour in alberobello was great. Our guide was Giusy, she brought us through alberobello and explained the history of the trullis. We got to visit the garden of a resident who owned a trulli, which was a nice touch. We visited the trulli church, where giusy explained the frescos, all before heading to a local shop to taste olive oil and taralli. We ended up buying a few things there too! We had about an hour of free time to wander alberobello on our own, before being picked up and brought back to matera. Thank you for the great trip!
