Who has not heard of the Trulli in Puglia, the typical stone houses with cone-shaped roofs? Here is where you will find them nestled among narrow streets of the historic centres of Valle d’Itria, where everything is white, the walls of the houses, the footpaths and walled gardens, and the white reflects the sun and white stand out against the blue sky. The area is brimming with local agricultural and natural delights, olive groves, vineyards, ancient woods, hills and greenhouses, not to mention the ever-present scent of grilled meat, the mouth-watering “bombette” from Martina Franca, that spreads through the alleys of towns and villages.
