We decided to visit Brindisi in the South of Italy and one of the monuments we visited is the MONUMENTO AL MARINAIO...build by Mussolini it overlooks this small town amazing port. You can see as far as Albania and Greece from there. Definetely worth the visit!

We walked to this monument around the bay. Took as an hour but worth the exercise. You can catch the bay ferry for 1 Euro (good value).

The attraction is free but you must have ID. Passport or Driving License. We had neither but the concierge allowed us to go up after we spent some time explaining who we were.

Read the information boards. A good visit aNd fantastic views of the whole of Brindisi from the top.

If you don’t visit anywhere else visit here.

Not the most beautiful monument, made by Mussolini the first half of the last century, but a beautiful location overlooking the port of Brindisi

Although this monument is devoted to sailors, we cannot forget that this building was made under Mussolini. The pictures display the history of the building. The entry is free [donation is welcome] but you have to submit your ID or passport.

It is free to visit the monument which, despite the fact we visited in November, was open most days until mid-afternoon. Custodians very friendly and informative. Good view from the top. Best way to get there is to take the water bus from Brindisi main waterfront which ferries you across directly to the monument at weekends or to 'Villaggio Pescatori" - very pleasant short walk along waterfront with veiw of old Brindisi on one side and bougainville on the other - on other days of the week. Very nice.

Checked the opening times, and took the small ferry (one euro each per trip) right to the base of the monument. Inside is the chapel to those lost at sea during the two world wars. When you get to the front of the chapel - look down at the floor!
The stairs to the top of the monument are NOT from the chapel - go up the outer stairs at the side(s) then around to the base. A woman in the kiosk needed our identification to control the numbers - as only 8 people can be at the top at any one time! When then headed for the stairs!!
Which you are NOT allowed to use - you have to take the lift! There are about three floors of stairs once at the top of the lift - but not too difficult. The "roof top" area is VERY small so take your time and step carefully - but the views are the best!

You can't miss this monument, whichever side of Brindisi you're in.

Entrance is free although you'll have to be prepared to climb many steps to get to the top and enjoy the view (the lift only goes about half of the way and it takes about 10 minutes to get to the top by using the stairs). Unfortunately, many of the rooms that display photos and war memorabilia are locked, and the only room that we were able to enter had pictures of U.S warships. If you have at least half an hour to spare and want a good view of Brindisi, consider stopping at this monument. You can then recover from the climb by relaxing at the park at the foot of the monument.

A must-go place, it has history and a lovely view of all Brindisi. You can take the best pictures of the city in a sunny day. You need to climb plenty of stairs, though, as there is a lift but only till a certain level.

We stopped at the Monument on our way to the Airport. We didn't know about it so everything was a surprise. From the monument the view of the town is amazing. In the basement there is a chapel with an interesting collection of water of different seas.
