best two night stay...Trullo or cave house

We will have two nights and want either a Trullo experience in Alberbello or cave experience in Matera (spelling probably not correct). Any opinions on which would be more interesting. If we opt for the more further stay in cave house we could still see Tulli on a day trip. We will not have a car but will arrange transfers. Itinerary....Ostuni....the two nights in question....Lecce...Poligrano a Mare. thank you.

1. Re: best two night stay...Trullo or cave house

We spend 1 night in each of Alberobello, Lecce and Matera in 2011 and really enjoyed all of them. Some would say that Alberobello is too touristy with too many souvenir shops, and it was quite crowded during the day as there were busloads of daytrippers delivered from cruise ships, but we still found it interesting.

Whichever, you decide on, I can recommend accommodation. Trulli e Puglia in Alberobello, Risorgimento Resort in Lecce, and Locanda Di San Martino in Matera.

Wigwam...thank you for the reply and recommendations. After looking a bit at the situation and despite the fact that Matera is out of the "loop" those cave hotels look intriguing and there is something that says it will be worth it to go out there and stay for two nights. I am hoping to get a driver or some way to go from Ostuni to Matera passing through Alberobello and a quick look around. Just too many comments about how "touristy" it is and I am not that excited about the Trullo anymore compared with the caves.
