Puglia's Trulli

Meet the trullo. This quirky little conical dwelling can be found in Puglia, the long and skinny region of Italy that makes up the heel of the boot. Trulli (the singular is trullo) are whitewashed stone huts with stacked slate tile roofs that are often decorated with astrological signs. The heart of trulli country is the town of Alberobello in Puglia, where 1,500 trulli make up a large part of the town and are filled with little shops and wine bars that attract a large number of tourists. Some trulli, however, are still inhabited; if you visit Puglia, be sure to seek out this more authentic representation of the trulli. If you really want to see what it was like to live in these ancient structures, book a night or two in a trullo instead of a hotel! This is easy to arrange and will make for a memorable trip.
