Welcome to Trulli Italian School, the first Italian language school for foreigners in Alberobello: the most famous city in Apulia and the only city made up entirely of “Trulli”
School Location: Alberobello.
We’re lucky to live in a location that seems like something out of a fairytale, just minutes away from heavenly beaches, with local cuisine being among the best in Italy, surrounded by miles of hills and idyllic landscapes. Enough to make Tuscany jealous..

We follow a comunicative teaching method. We believe in learning Italian in a way which is active, dynamic and lively. In our lessons we make use of books, participating in class conversations, songs, videos, role plays and outdoor-activities. An authentic use of Italian in real life, daily contexts, naturally without neglecting the rules of the language.
All teachers at Trulli Italian School are young, qualified and certified in teaching teenagers and senior students. In every lesson, the student is our focal point of attention, considering his/her individual learning times and personal needs.
Our students are really lucky cause they can decide to sleep in beautiful Trulli in the countryside equipped with a swimming pool and immersed in silent countryside, or in a hotel just a stone’s throw away from the school and the centre of Alberobello or single or shared apartments, all to enjoy the stay in Apulia.
