1. Shop for Good Luck Whistles

Fischetti Whistles, Alberobello, Italy

Blowing whistles, ‘fischetti’, have a long tradition in Alberobello. At night, unique whistle sounds were used by courting couples to signal each other that it was safe to meet, and these good-luck whistles were given as fertility gifts for newlyweds as well as by men, who gave them to their girlfriends to announce their engagement. Housed in an ancient, windowless trullo, La Botteca whistle shop sells handmade terracotta whistles with over 5,000 different designs — "trulli" something for everyone!
