Italy: Trulli of Alberobello
This was like being in a fairy tale – like a real Lord of The Rings stuff. Trulli are traditional stone houses in the southern Italy (in the heel of Italy) that have conical roof and whitewashed rounded bodies. In Alberobello there are over 1,500 trulli houses – many are stores and cafés, some are hotel rooms. Many houses have good luck symbols painted on their roofs.
