Project Description

The Itria Valley and Alberobello

The Itria Valley, also known as the Valley of the Trulli, is an authentic land rich in ancient traditions and history.
You will immerse yourself in an almost fairytale-like landscape, where incredible white villages stand out among the green of the countryside made up of marvelous expanses of olive trees, almond trees, vineyards and the red of the earth.

An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Puglia or from the main stations, airports or ports to Alberobello.
An unparalleled town in the heart of the Itria Valley, also included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1996, the “capital of the Trulli” is truly surprising for its shapes and colors. In its city center, lie more than 1500 trulli, very white dry stone buildings, traditional of Southern Puglia, with a conical and pyramidal shaped roof.
The bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed specifically to let you discover all the secrets of this characteristic village, where the atmosphere takes us back to past centuries.

The tour continues to Martina Franca, the second stop of the day, known for its splendid Baroque architecture and for the famous Valle d’Itria Music Festival.
The viewpoint of the Itria Valley, overlooking the countryside dotted with trulli and the green of the vineyards, is part of one of the most beautiful belvederes in Italy.
Immediately after, the tour stops in Locorotondo, called after the traditional circular shape of each town in the area. In this small village, houses are often refer to as “cummerse”, due to the sharp, pitched roof.

You will enjoy in an accessible and traditional local restaurant, where you can savor local dishes served in elegant vaulted stone rooms. In the Apulian cuisine, first courses are a must: among the most famous one you will find the homemade “orecchiette with turnip tops”, or the “tiella”, made with rice, potatoes, mussels, onions and tomatoes.
