About the tour

The ancient town of Monopoli has no connection to the board game. The locals proudly share the sentiment that Monopoli was founded on the sea and from the sea. It sits on the Adriatic sea a few kilometers south of Bari. The old town is wrapped around a fortified sea-front walls with cannons mounted on top and a lovely sandy beach with emerald blue water. The impressive Charles V Castle, built in 1552, sits next to the fisherman's port where you can also enjoy the fishermen's homes washed with limestone. As you enter the tiny cobblestone street you are walking into what the locals call "Paese Vecchio", here, charming squares, churches, shops, artisan studios, noble palaces, and trendy trattorias, taverns, and cafes reveal their charm and beauty.

Took this trip last minute and I am so glad I did! The views were incredible, loved the white/blue contrast. It is a place with a lot of charm and character. This was my first trip with Antimo and it was very enjoyable, he is very knowledgeable and passionate at what he does.

This was a fascinating tour of a city we'd never heard of. Particularly enjoyed the description of the very odd display in a certain church.
