(8kms) - The town of the Trulli.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the concentration and multitude of trulli found in the town (about 1,500 of them!).
Probably the most touristy of all the towns in the Valle D'Itria, but still worth a visit. Wander down the narrow trulli-lined streets, dipping in to the predominantly souvenir-filled shops (the leatherwork shop is worth a look). Sit and have a coffee or grab some freshly baked foccacia at "La Lira" foccaceria.
If you are parking in the trulli zone, make sure you pay for your parking at the machines. The Wine Museum, situated near the train station in Alberobello is worth a visit too.
There are two handy supermarkets in Alberobello.
As you enter Alberobello, (from Trullo Genna) take the 3rd exit off the roundabout and after a few hundred yards you will see Doc Supermarket on your left, there is a small carpark. It is open 7 days a week now, but shorter hours on Sunday.
Alternatively keep going on the same road a little further and you will find the newer 'Conad' on your right. This too has a carpark.
On the same road just after 'Conad' you will see 'Il Fidelio" ristorante on your left which serves good food in elegant surroundings.
Our favourite place to eat though, is the Trattoria next door called "Gli Ulivi". It is one of the most popular places for locals to eat which is high praise indeed. The food is wonderfully tasty - try the antipasto della casa - but be warned there is a lot of it! - and the vino della casa is great too. This wonderful trattoria is great value for your euro.
Like many places, pizza is only served in the evening. You can pick up a takeaway pizza from here (pizze da asporto) if you fancy eating at Genna.
