Begin with a beautiful drive into the countryside as you head towards this charming UNESCO World Heritage Site. As soon as you arrive, it will be apparent why Alberobello is a special place. Alberobello was first mentioned in the early sixteenth century when the first 40 families got land to farm in the area. The abundance of calcareous sedimentary material in the area lead to the building of houses with dry stone without the use of mortar. These houses were the first trulli which contributed to the expansion of the settlement. Building the houses of dry stone was a requirement of Count Giangirolamo II as this way it was avoidable to pay taxes on them.

These trulli homes still stand and form an architectural wonder in their repetition. They are round, white-washed and look like they are from a storybook fable. Their cone-shaped roofs are made from local grey stone. The true origin of these homes is unknown but the tradition is thought to be 5,000 years old.

There are more than 100 of these dome dwellings in this old town and they are set atop a hillside surrounded by olive groves. Inside, the rooms are separated with colorful curtains and furnishings that are handmade from olive wood by the local farmers who have lived here for generations.

Your tour will take you through the town which includes a stop at St. Antonio, the only trullo church in the world. You will have some time to roam about on your own before heading back to your starting point.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
