Tanya’s Travels: Alberobello, Castel del Monte, and Trani
With only a few days and so much to see in Puglia, I picked the highlights.
The conical trulli in Alberobello (take a virtual tour here!) where adorable and we were fortunate to be invited inside someone’s home to have a look around. There is much more living space than one would think. We admired the white cathedral in Trani as it glimmered in the sea and had a fabulous lunch of local specialities at Osteria Corte in Fiore. The kids I particularly enjoyed climbing up to Castel del Monte and learning about the mystery associated with this octagonal castle.
After our action packed morning, it was wonderful to return to the calming beach where we would let the rest of the day unfold. It was difficult to leave Borgo Egnazia. Julia and I both decided this was the best place we had ever stayed, no exceptions. After our amazing experience in Puglia, Lorenzo and Julia have decided it is their favorite Italian region (until next year when we go some place new!).
