Visit the most picturesque villages of Puglia, like Ostuni,  located on the foothills of the Murge plateau. Also known as the White City because of the characteristic color of its houses. Ostuni rises to over 200 meters above sea level and has spectacular views. Alberobello, the trulli village, is a UNESCO world heritage site: the trulli are remarkable examples of drywall (mortar less) construction, a prehistoric building technique still in use in this region. The trulli are made of roughly worked limestone boulders, collected from neighboring fields. Characteristically, they feature pyramidal, domed or conical roofs built up of corbelled limestone slabs. Stone street, calm plazas and mystical sea caves make Polignano a Mare one of the most charming coastal towns in Italy. You can also enjoy some of the best gelato over here!
