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.

Monopoli isn't quite yet on the main tourist trail in Puglia, so offers an authentic Puglian Centro Storico experience, as it's very much lived in. Granted, over the last few years its become busier and more gentrified as tourism picks up, but it hasn't lost...More
