M37***77This is the "paradise town" in southern Italy
The town is small, only 11,000 people live
Even if you have tasted all over the world
Sunshine, humanities, art, street scene
Here you can still poke your weakness at once
Unesco World Heritage Site Alberobello resembles an urban sprawl – for gnomes. The zona dei trulli on the westernmost of the town's two hills is a dense mass of 1500 beehive-shaped houses, white-tipped as if dusted by snow. These drystone buildings are made from local limestone; none are older than the 14th century.
The town is named after the primitive oak forest Arboris Belli (beautiful trees) that once covered this area. It's an amazing place, but also something of a tourist trap – from May to October busloads of tourists pile into trullo homes, drink in trullo bars and shop in trullo shops. Try to visit in the morning to avoid the arrival of tourist buses and the inevitable throng of visitors.
If you park in Lago Martellotta, follow the steps up to Piazza del Popolo, where the Belvedere Trulli lookout offers fabulous views over the whole higgledy-piggledy picture.

Alberobello remained a fief of the Acquaviva of Aragon until May 27, 1797, when King Ferdinand IV of Bourbon elevated the small village to the royal city, freeing it from the feudal servitude of the counts. On 22 June 1797, the first mayor Francesco Giuseppe Lippolis was elected.
Alberobello is the only inhabited center with an entire district of trulli. It is therefore considered the cultural capital of the trulli of the Valle d'Itria.
A Village in Italy
Alberobello is city located in italy and one of most visiting.they are a lot of souvenir shop and the city is full white color ,I love the small buildings architecture and design of the city ,it is unique ,I am happy to go back the village ,it is interesting to visit you too.
Puglia (Apulia in English) holds a special place in my heart. White is the dominant tone here, and you’ll find yourself in a constant summer mood all year long. Like most of Italy, you’ll see that there’s no shortage of Unesco sites here, and Alberobello is one of them.
This town is famous for its “trulli”, ancient round houses made of stone with a conical roof. While you can find them everywhere driving in the countryside amid seas of olive trees, the ones in Alberobello are the most famous and colourful ones.
Walking throughout the village you’ll find small shops with handcrafted products and souvenirs, plus delicious local products like “tarallucci”, “orecchiette”, and olive oil (probably the best olive oil you’ll ever taste in your life, as Puglia is home to more than a billion olive trees!).
It’s been touristy nowadays so the place tends to be a little bit crowded, but you can’t really miss a stop here.

Trulli Di Alberobello is one of the most beautiful place I've ever seen in Italy. This little town is worth to visit in Alberobello just to see these wild, conical-roofed cottages. The place is really stunning and magical! #wintergetaway
Like a "Mushroom Village" in fairy tales! In Alberobello at Southern Italy, the Trulli have lovely conical roofs, the shape like mushrooms!
Alberobello, a different name may be more familiar, "Mushroom Village." There are no steady blue dads, simple blue sisters, and other cute Smurfs. Such a mushroom house building in Italy is called "Trullo".
The mushroom village is not big. There are three areas in the well-preserved mushroom village. Visitors usually only stay in the Rione Monti area, where most of the mushroom houses have become shops or restaurants, typical tourist attractions. We live in another well-preserved mushroom village, Aia Piccola. On the contrary, I feel that I can find the real life of the mushroom village in the past.
The street is very quiet. Occasionally, you can meet passionate Italians. Most of the old people living in the town are more and more young people are leaving their hometowns to find opportunities in big cities. On the contrary, tourists like us are very envious of the plain life and the fantastic buildings here. Living in such a beautiful town, I don't think I will feel tired for at least a few years.
