See what remains of an important heritage: the Castle, the Monastery and the Cathedral; the guide will narrate facts and tales related to those places. From here, you will drive to Alberobello for a nice walk enjoying the view from a shop terrace: the Trulli, unique cone-roofed houses, are located close to one another in an areal that was declared from UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
