This is a gorgeous spot. Small. Delightful. Very dramatic views. Not too many big hotels. Cute restaurants.

The beautiful white and cosy city is build on rocks. Therefor you feel high above the sea when you look down from the terrases.

Very atmospheric old town and very clean, too. We saw it in winter with all the pretty Christmas lights. The local authorities had done a great job at it. Nice little cafes and great cats and Christmas trees! :)

Maybe one of the most well known towns at the Bari coast, its fame is probably exagerated. Nice views of the sea and little more. There are other nicer towns as Monopoli!

There is quite a large car park on Via Rocco Giuliani. Then a short stroll up Via Tritone to get to the old city. There is a network of one-way streets to navigate. Easiest is to go down Via Pompeo Sarnelli, turn right into... More
