Alberobello, capital of ‘Trullishire’

Tuscany, renamed ‘Chianti-shire’, after the high number of english visiting and even relocating in that region, to the more convenient (and in my opinion, nicer) Puglia, specifically in what has been called ‘trulli-shire’.
What is a ‘trullo’? As per the pictures posted, an ancient concept of small rounded shape house/cottage, with a removable stone roof.
Alberobello is now very ‘trendy’ among english visitors, however it has always been a well-known destination for italians.

I’m sure everybody visiting Alberobello will enjoy the atmosphere, the sightseeing and the kindness of local people.

Nowadays most of the buildings in the centre are converted into, either apartments for rental or small souvenir shops, where you will be invited for a taste of local products (cookies, liqueurs…).
