... 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.

Lots of little villages only about 5 mins apart (by train). There's older school kids on the train. Don't ...
... up and down the street of houses many have been turned into tourist shops with food, wine, ornaments & local crafts. Away from these main streets you have the opportunity to walk past many that are private residents, while walking past the houses it's easy to think an Oompa Loompa or elf might pop his head out the door to say hello.
