Many tourists consider Alberobello one of the most interesting Italian cities. It is known for its unique architecture as some houses are built in the "trulli" style. Thanks to them, the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name Alberobello probably originated from the Latin sylva arboris belli, which marks the beautiful tree grove that was once in the place of today's town. One comes here like a fairy tale. Snow-white circular houses with a gray stone roof, decorated with a variety of symbols. They are glued to each other and in the aisles between them they live incredibly. You can find the way to them easily, everywhere there are signs. And if somebody missed all these signs, a crowd of tourists would surely be able to get there.

The small town is divided into two districts. Most of the tourists are heading to Rione Monti, so it's nice to live here. We are so fascinated that we always stop to take pictures of things around us. The country houses were built in the 17th century in particular, they are crammed together, and there are rising and descending picturesque streets full of small souvenir shops, some of which are museums. You can see how people live. Admission is free, but you can contribute to the box on the table. There are about 1000 trulls in this area. We came to the highest place where the church of St Anthony, who fits perfectly between the other houses. It was built in the 20th century by one of the last living masters of trull builder. The dome is nearly twenty meters high and the neighboring bell tower is only one meter lower.

Riona Aia Piccola is the second district of Alberobello. This part is about knowing more calmly, and the atmosphere of the city unmarked by tourism is more authentic. There are about 400 truls around 1500 inhabitants. Our other stop was Piazza del Popolo square. There you can have a small snack or sit in the café.

Our visit to Alberobella is just great. Perhaps everybody has taken their breath away as the atmosphere is really unique. The city is a real rarity, and it is situated in a lovely and fertile region full of wine and olives.
