What can you do and see at the Alberobello trulli?

Alberobello is a small Italian town located in the country's Apulia region. The town is mostly known for its "trulli", huts made with whitewashed stone and conical roofs.  These make the town look very quaint and picturesque.  The trulli, which date back to the 16th Century have been designated UNESCO World Heritage site.

Check out this list of things that you can do and see if you visit the town of Alberobello.  

Check out the Trulli

But of course you have to go to the settlements in Rione Monti, Aia Piccola, and Trullo Sovrano.  These homes will make you remember the home of the Hobbits.  The trulli were constructed with the purpose of confusing authorities into thinking that these were temporary homes. 

Museo del Territorio

You have to visit this museum to take a look at the ways of the 16th-Century peasant families. Through a pleasant tour, you can see how these families of Puglia used to live, farm, and build their trulli. 

Museo dell' Olio

If you would like to know how olive oil is produced and has been through time, the Museo dell' Olio is the right place to go.   The building includes an old oil mill that saw its final days by the 1960s.   There is well-documented information about the process of producing olive oil.

Locorotondo

This town is located only 5 km from Alberobello. This is a thoroughly pleasant town that you should explore by foot. The center of the town is located on the top of a hill surrounded by baroque archways, gorgeous mazes of lanes, and really good restaurants. Oh, and of course, trulli.

Martina Franca

You need to visit another town next to Alberobello, and that is Martina Franca. The trademark of the place is their capocollo, the towns own renowned cured ham.  People are very pleasant and they always welcome a tourist.
