Grand Hotel Olimpo 

An ideal base for exploring Puglia's trulli houses

This simple hotel is just a short stroll from the UNESCO-listed town of Alberobello.

This modern hotel is a good-value base for self-drive holidays in Puglia, especially if you’re planning on exploring the region’s famous trulli houses. Stroll into the historic heart of Alberobello and discover the unique buildings with conical roofs that house shops, restaurants, homes, a church and a museum. A guided tour of Alberobello is a great way to learn about the history and construction of these distinctive UNESCO-listed buildings. It’s also just half an hour from the coast so you’re within easy reach of seaside towns such as Savelletri and Monopoli.

Why we love Grand Hotel Olimpo
