I had always been fascinated by the unique stone structures known as trulli that dot the landscape of Alberobello in southern Italy’s Puglia region. On a summer trip to Italy, I decided to make a stop in Alberobello to experience these unusual dwellings for myself.

After an overnight train from Rome, I arrived in the small town early in the morning. The sun was just coming up, casting a warm glow over the lush green fields and groves of olive trees that surrounded the area. I stretched my legs as I exited the train station, eager to start exploring. My first views of Alberobello did not disappoint. Scattered throughout the hillsides as far as the eye could see were the iconic cone-shaped roofs and whitewashed stone walls of hundreds of trulli. It was like stepping into a fairytale landscape.

I decided to start my day with a cappuccino and cornetto at a neighborhood café near the train station. As I sipped my coffee, I overheard conversations in the local dialect and watched the morning bustle of townspeople stopping in for their daily caffeine fix. I found it fascinating to observe the daily rhythms of small-town Italian life play out before me. After fueling up, I set out on foot to wander the trulli-lined streets and soak up the unique atmosphere.
