Alberobello, land of "I Puffi"

This UNESCO heritage site is where that uniquely Valle d'Itrian structure, the trullo, obviously struck almost all the townsfolk as the epitome of style.  The result is this bizarre smurf-ville of a town which is now the victim of its own "success" by which we mean it seems to thrive on having tourists come to admire wonder out loud what people were thinking.  (Perhaps you can tell this is not our favorite spot.)  A must-see, if only to get a picture of this bizarre spot.  Then go to Ostuni, or Martina Franca, or anywhere else. Really.
