At our second excursion to discover Puglia we visited Alberobello. Alberobello is very cute little town, which is on the UNESCO world heritage list since 1996. Simply spoken, Alberobello is the home of trulli. Hundreds of beautifully shaped and decorated small houses with conical roofs, all kept in typical white. After we strolled a little bit to discover the old alleys, we sat down at a local coffee shop to enjoy some sweets and Italian coffee and we asked some locals where the best view point of the town is. We headed there, enjoyed the unique view, took some photos and then we headed to Monopoli.
Like so many other small towns in Italy, Monopoli has also it’s unique flair. Situated by the sea, you can have a swim by just walking towards the sea, which is very appealing when you need a refreshing bath after work or at noon. I couldn’t have enough watching the people lying on every rock and sunbathing, just in front of the old town. I would enjoy living in such a wonderful place, where like they say, the clocks seem to tick slower. The wonderful breeze that we had that day made the exploration a real pleasure, without having to worry about the heat. What we really liked about Monopoli, was the fact that it was much less crowded than other places we visited. After the first round we made in the old town, we decided to have a nice meal in front of the castle. Amazing spot and the restaurant was really unique in many ways. The table decoration was beautiful and all the dishes we ordered so creative. We really enjoyed the unusual starters served to us in Puglia, the so called taralli (small round baked rings of bread) and the carosello, a local variety of fruit, which looks like a melon, but tastes like a cucumber. We also enjoyed seeing a great variety of fresh fish and seafood instead of meat dishes all around Puglia.
Our last stop was the famous Polignano a Mare, with its iconic tiny rocky beach between the cliffs, where we enjoyed a bath in the crystal clear waters.
