The first time I saw a picture of Alberobello, and of Trulli cottages, I thought it wasn’t a real place but a theme park or something like that. But then I found out that it’s real, it’s a real village. I heard it was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. -

The first thing that catches the attention of the trulli cottages (“trulli” is the plural, and “trullo” is the singular), is their shape. They are real houses but like those one described in fairy tales where elves live. Tiny, round houses with dome or cone roof, similar to mushrooms where fairies and goblins live. Imagine a village that appears all in this way. Hundreds of white houses with their narrow streets, restaurants and even a church with the shape of Trullo.
Trulli cottages: ordinary houses, small but well organized
Local people are very friendly and they are even willing to show their homes to tourists. I had the opportunity to visit one of these trulli cottages, one ordinary house where lives a family like any other. I was surprised that, even though the houses are small, they are very well organized inside. While I was in this house, I thought that Snow White or one of the seven dwarves could have come out anytime to talk with us.
It’s a nice fantasy village, beautiful! Where you can find hundreds of souvenir shops. If you want to visit Alberobello, go early to avoid the large number of tourists, from all over the world, coming each year. I invite you to travel to the land of fantasy - and visit the beautiful Trulli cottages of Alberobello.
