... to see just how beautiful this place really is. There are views straight out of postcards everywhere and the sea was perfectly clear and turquoise blue, it really was a place right from my dreams. The only downside was the whipping wind, but I can only imagine how perfect a destination this would be in the Summer.
The town was so cute, too. If you picture an Italian village where everyone knows each other, everyone is yelling, the families ...
Day 3. No rain today so I got the train to Alberobello which is about 10 km away. The view was amazing with all the little trulli houses scattered throughout the countryside. They're little round houses that the poor people used to live in. Now they've all been or are being done up. Still lots of dry stone walls around here. It's very agricultural. Had a good day wandering around Alberobello. Went into the tourist trulli and the Basillica of Medici. Gees it ...

Countryside is very flat and quite stony. There's some dry stone walls and I even saw a shepherd with his sheep. Lots of olive trees (some very old), grape vines, market gardens. Lots of little villages only about 5 mins apart (by train). There's older school kids on the train. Don't ...
Tuesday 23rd Dec - I know I'm getting a little repetitive, but ever since I saw this place on a TV program I have wanted to visit it in real life, so this was our chance as its only a short train trip from Bari. It's a picturesque village that is another World UNESCO heritage site for its unique "trulli" houses that have cone shaped roofs.
The history behind them is, once the whole town where just of trulli and being typical Italian - they were designed to fiddle ...
