Trani to Trulli

By John

We leasurely left the port of Trani which is a nice stopover ..lovely port and town with a very tall cathedral well worth a visit with interesting bells!!!
Our intended destinations where the Trulli at Alborobello after an interesting diversion to a town without car parking space caused by satnav programming error( me) we arrived at Alborobello at about 18:30 ..

The carpark which is a partly cleared slopeing vine grove was nearly empty . Prices were posted on the gate from 08:00 till 20:00 but no sign of where to pay so we parked and had a beer to calm our nerves ( especially Susan’s as the last 15 min was quite stressful.
Then as dusk started to fall we wandered into the Trulli village and what an amazing place. Lots of joined together small stone dwellings with stone conical roofs , a bit like a mad hobbit extravaganza.

As the crowds where virtually cleared away we had a good opportunity to peruse and photograph fairly unimpeded. It is a lovely place well off the normal Brit tourist area and well worth a visit. We strolled back to Hetty for a leisurely supper very happy.
