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.

We absolutely loved the churches, restaurants and general vibes in Monopoli. The town was vibrant yet humble, not too many tourists (mostly Italians) and local food was delicious.

We always visited Monopoli at night, we stayed in a Masseria close by, first time on a Sunday evening when I think most of the population of Monopoli were out for their passegiata. Monday and Tuesday were quite compared to Sunday and less lively, a...More

Best place to hire a car would be in Bari airport or in Brindisi airport.
