The Cathedral is beautiful and located at the end of a piazza but the fun experience had to do with a group of middle school children from Lecce who were on a day outing and were sitting on the steps. As I started up the steps to enter the church they noticed me and started asking questions in broken English.... More

A few hours it is all you need to visit this town. Promoted by a lot of tour books and sites, but not the greatest place in Puglia. The Duomo charged a small admission, but not worth it.

We spent 5 weeks in Puglia. As we had friends coming to stay we went into Ostuni many times, and my advice is to visit the old town which will take no more than an hour and perhaps another hour if you go to the Museum. Parking is a nightmare especially on weekends (Saturday market makes it impossible). The old... More

We were only in Ostuni for few hours and that time was what we needed to see the town. There was not much to see, unless I miss something. The town's walls are painted white around the town perimeter, but when walking inside, the color has a natural rustic look. We visited Ostuni during their "siesta" time because 99% of... More

Didn't spend as long here as I'd hoped, as there was a wedding in progress soon after I arrived. Worth seeing, but contrary to the opinion of another contributor there is another sight in Ostuni worth visiting. A short walk from the cathedral, at Via Cattedrale 15, is the Museo di Cività Preclassiche della Murgia, with interesting displays of prehistoric... More

We loved the Duomo, and the walk through the old town up the hill to reach it. The view across the countryside to the sea is truly lovely. Once we were inside the Duomo, we were struck by the way it seemed to be a real part of the community's life and still maintain a very calm and peaceful atmosphere.... More

We visited the Duomo on a visit to Ostuni, "The White City". To be honest it is the only place in town worth a look. Very quiet and calming, the interior is nice, but not worth the admission charge. Once inside you look up to the rose window, which isn't there. It is just a part of the fascade. Ostuni... More

Impressive facade in its simplicity and beauty. Ostuni has an old town center with sweeping views of the surrounding country side and out to sea.

The church was nice. You can see really nice view bit up the hill and to the right. You can see all the way to the sea from the hill side!
