Visit south of Italy.
The southern Italian town of Alberobello is far from the tourist trail, but those that do make it there are in for a treat. Since 2006 the town has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, attracting a growing number of visitors. Alberobello is famed for its gnome-like houses known as trulli. There are around 1,500 of them in the town, making for a distinctive look.

A trullo (plural trulli) is a traditional, stone dwelling which can be found in Puglia in southern Italy. Puglia is a long, narrow region in Italy, which reaches from north of the hilly Gargano peninsula all the way down to the ‘stiletto heel’ of Italy’s iconic boot-shape.
In Alberobello, South of Rome, Phyllis Wong finds the enchanting fairytale-like trulli and the streets on which they stand too perfect that they lack real life. “DO Snow White and the seven Dwafts stay in these houses?” a little girl asked Phyllis at the eye clinic the other day while she was browsing through the pictures she took in Italy on her iPad.
