Monopoli's downtown is a must see if you are staying in the area. Little streets, white houses with a lot of flowers and rooftop terraces, centuries old building. Romantic and cozy both in daylight and in the night when the lights are on. The see...More

Beautiful area of the city, one of the nicest on the coast of Apulia. A church or monument every time you turn the corner, and with the summer nearing, more and more restaurants are opening their doors. A wonderful place to wander for a day.

We have been here for 3 weeks. A beautiful location with extremely helpful and friendly locals. I’m actually a bit reluctant to say too much as I don’t want it to be spoilt by an influx of tourists.

Much less touristy than Polignano a Mare, but with the same type architecture and vibe in the old part of town. Very accessible port and nice little castle, and the town is very lived in.

Lovely area to stroll around, the step massive steps down to the harbour front along the harbour frontage and to the Navel ships is a delight for anyone interested in strolling along soaking up the atmosphere.

very pleasant and interesting, lovely architecture like most of the old historical centers in Puglia. The waterfront with its castle and cannons is an attraction, specially for children. Not too turistic, keeps it local carachteristics. Plenty of nice places to eat and drink.

Gorgeous area with tiny streets, whitewashed buildings and a real feeling of being so separate from the hustle and bustle of the world. There is a great, well signed walk through the area for your first wander.
