Monopoli is much appreciated for its beaches, excellent restaurants and vibrant nightlife. The town is not overcrowded by tourists though. It can give you a truly relaxing break away from everything.
It is a pleasure to get deliberately lost wandering the little streets of the old part of town, meeting the castle, the harbour, the cathedral, the many beautiful churches, small shops, the hospitable local people…Monopoli leaves you with a feeling of authenticity and familiarity.
The inhabitants of Monopoli live with the sea. Sunbathing, swimming, just being at the seaside in contemplation or meeting with others. If you want, that life is there for you to join! Close to Casamas lies the local beach along the ancient town wall, called ‘Cala Porta Vecchia’. Going south you find a succession of small sandy beaches.
