Alberobello, a small town located where Italy's heel meets its sole, is famous for its absurdly charming white-washed, cone-topped houses. These 16th century "trulli," as they're called, have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Truely!

What people are saying about Alberobello

A Great Way to See and Understand the Sassi

Our guide, Cosimo, was a Matera native and gave us a great appreciation for the long history of the area and the Sassi, in particular. I would strongly recommend this tour for anyone looking for more than a cursory look at the Sassi.

It was a beautiful day and a lovely tour of Alberobello and Matera.

Vito picked us up at our hotel and along with 2 others from the US, we started our drive to Alberobello. Vito was very interesting and entertaining. It is always lovely to meet someone who is passionate about the area he is from and the towns we are visiting. We had a beautiful day, the sites were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by us. Thank you to Vito. Highly recommend!!

Excellent information on the history of the Sassi.

Our guide was very considerate of my wife's Limited ability to navigate the many steps involved in touring the Sassi. She adjusted our path so that my wife could see as much of the old Town area as possible. We both enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot.

An amazing town, a knowledgeable and patient guide made a super tour.

Our tour was arranged with Dora and was outside the 'normal' time but Dora kindly agreed to our request. Our guide, Marinella, was delightful, knowledgeable and paced the tour to suit our needs. Such an amazing town with an astonishing history, and so much recent history. We had a great morning and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Thank you
