Arberobello and Locorotondo: two gems of the Itria Valley

Arberobello – discover the historical trulli pinnacles
The historic city center of Alberobello is a Unesco World Heritage site. It is dominated by more than 1500 trulli: traditional Puglian buildings with conical stone roofs, built without mortar. They are still used as homes, restaurants, shops or tourist accommodations. You will visit the two historical Trulli districts: Aia Piccola and Monti. If desired, you can also visit the Trullo Sovrano. This unique two-storey trullo was converted into a museum and will give you a unique insight into the interior of trullo living quarters.

A tour with a driver/escort to experience Alberobello’s trulli (UNESCO World Heritage Site) is highly recommended. Alberobello’s trulli, the traditional conical-roofed stone houses, are among the most important monuments of southern Italy. Start your tour from the Aia Piccola to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is the warm heart of the city. Visit the trulli and enjoy the view from some of their roof terraces. The local museum is located in the Trullo Sovrano, where you can admire the typical décor of the 1900s.
In the old town, it is very nice to stroll along the narrow streets and choose the perfect photo motive. You should visit the ancient church of St. Anthony and some of the local craft shops. We can also arrange a wine and food tasting experience for you.

Locorotondo – home of the “Cummerse” and white wine
Locorotondo is an idyllic hamlet built in a circle – hence its name which translates “round place”. Heading for this village, you will get a great view of the its fascinating architecture from the highway. In Locorotondo´s center, you will enjoy the picturesque whitewashed houses with the so-called “pignon” stone roofs. You should also try the famous local white wine, the “Locorotondo DOC”!

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Zürich, Switzerland

We’ll meet at 4 p.m. at our hotel in Luzern (Lucerne) for a “Welcome to Switzerland” meeting. Then we’ll take a meandering evening walk through Switzerland’s most charming lakeside town, and get acquainted with one another over dinner together. Sleep in Luzern (2 nights). No bus. Walking: light.

Day 2Zürich–Biel/Bienne–Neuchâtel–Geneva

Enjoy an orientation walk of Zurich’s OLD TOWN, Switzerland’s center of banking and commerce. Then, leave Zurich and start your Swiss adventure. You’ll quickly discover that Switzerland isn’t just home to the Alps, but also to some of the most beautiful lakes. First, stop at the foot of the Jura Mountains in the picturesque town of Biel, known as Bienne by French-speaking Swiss, famous for watch-making, and explore the historical center. Next, enjoy a scenic drive to lakeside Neuchâtel, dominated by the medieval cathedral and castle. Time to stroll along the lake promenade before continuing to stunning Geneva, the second-largest city in Switzerland, with its fantastic lakeside location and breathtaking panoramas of the Alps.

Day 3Enchanting Engelberg

Our morning drive takes us from Swiss lakes to Swiss Army. At the once-secret Swiss army bunker at Fortress Fürigen, we’ll see part of the massive defense system designed to keep Switzerland strong and neutral. Afterward, a short drive into the countryside brings us to the charming Alpine village of Engelberg, our picturesque home for the next two days. We’ll settle into our lodge then head out for an orientation walk. Our stroll through the village will end at the Engelberg Abbey, a Benedictine monastery with its own cheese-making operation. You’ll have free time to wander back before dinner together. Sleep in Engelberg (2 nights). Bus: 1 hr. Walking: light.

Day 4Interlaken Area. Excursion to The Jungfrau Massif

An unforgettable trip to the high Alpine wonderland of ice and snow is the true highlight of a visit to Switzerland. Globus Local Favorite At an amazing 11,332 feet, the JUNGFRAUJOCH is Europe’s highest railway station. Jungfrau’s 13,642-foot summit was first ascended in 1811 and in 1912 the rack railway was opened. There are lots of things to do here: enjoy the ALPINE SENSATION, THE PANORAMA 360° EXPERIENCE, and the ICE PALACE. Also receive your JUNGFRAU PASSPORT as a souvenir to take home with you. The round trip to the “Top of Europe” by MOUNTAIN TRAIN will take most of the day.

Day 5Lake Geneva and Château de Chillon

It’s market day in Lausanne! Enjoy browsing and packing a picnic lunch for our 11 a.m. boat cruise on Lake Geneva. A few miles down-shore we’ll dock at Château de Chillon, where we’ll have a guided tour of this delightfully medieval castle on the water. On our way back we’ll take time to peek into the vineyards surrounding Lutry before returning to Lausanne. Boat: 2 hrs. Bus: 1 hr. Walking: moderate.
