Our day trip was great, we were brought to alberobello in a very comfortable minivan with AC. Our driver was Conny. The journey there and back was great. The walking tour in alberobello was great. Our guide was Giusy, she brought us through alberobello and explained the history of the trullis. We got to visit the garden of a resident who owned a trulli, which was a nice touch. We visited the trulli church, where giusy explained the frescos, all before heading to a local shop to taste olive oil and taralli. We ended up buying a few things there too! We had about an hour of free time to wander alberobello on our own, before being picked up and brought back to matera. Thank you for the great trip!
