This small town is worth seeing & spending an hour or two to wander the narrow streets. It clearly deserves the moniker of one of Italy's most beautiful & picturesque villages!!

I can't recommend Cisternino highly enough. It's a lovely place to visit and we've been back many times. It doesn't have the crush of visitors or the "touristy" feel of places like Alberobello. I read somewhere that it is nicknamed "la vera" because it's "the...More
