Locorotondo, Italy

Locorotondo is a wonderful white city in Puglia, Italy. It is located down near the heel of the boot on the Adriatic Sea. In this entire area you can see Trulli homes (dome-shaped homes). Most people think of Alberobello for Trulli homes but they are located all over this area of Puglia. Other great cities in this area are Cisternino, Ostuni and Polignano a Mare (home of the Cave restaurant).

These cities are mostly white walls with beautiful flowers to add colors. They are unique places to visit. Each town is small and can be seen in a half to full day. Stop in bars and restaurants and enjoy the local flavors.

Come walk with us around Locorotondo in the video below. This is Dolce far niente!

Alberobello, Puglia, Italy

Alberobello is the best known and most touristy of the Trulli home cities. There is a large section that consists only of Trulli homes. The city is divided into two parts: 1) the main part of the city with its white buildings and the cathedral and 2) the Trulli section. The city is walkable as is the Trulli area. The Trulli area consists of small narrow streets that are pedestrian and moped only. This is a fairytale land worth spending time in.

Come see this enchanted city and walk with us through the Trulli homes. If you enjoy these VLOGs, please like it on YouTube and subscribe.

Trulli Italy a Unique Place

Italy Magazine says Trulli is a very unique place to visit. Trulli is in the southern part of Italy in the Puglia region. The magazine says, “Dotted across the landscape, alone or in clusters, with one cone or even a dozen, they look like miniature rustic fairytale castles – Asterix meets Disney.” Just look at the homes in the picture. They have been described as Italy’s farm sheds. Isn’t this a place you would love to visit? What a romantic place to spend time together.
