Monopoli embodies the balance between an elegant city and a seaside village. The beautiful historic center, the numerous squares, the promenade, the alleys, the stupendous cathedral and the stately buildings frame the ferment of a commercial city, where you can appreciate the sophisticated shops and musical events. The juxtaposition of modern bars and restaurants with the tangible and unstoppable seafaring life constitutes the unique charm of a city for all tastes. Let the tour organizers lead you to discover this enchanting town, rightly known as one of the most precious Apulians, and let yourself be amazed by immersing yourself in the captivating charm of its narrow streets and stone buildings with an ancient flavor. In the center from spring to early autumn it is also possible to stop on the coast for a cooling bath (Monopoli boasts one of the best seas on the coast, with its crystal clear waters of an intense blue) or for an alternative sunset. The rural surroundings and the coves surrounding the castle make Monopoli a paradise for those looking for a meeting point between fun and sweet relaxation.
About the tour
The visit of Monopoli by foot to discover the hamlet’s gems is recommended for those who love calm and prefer to appreciate all the details invisible to a quick eye. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
You will meet with the guide at the agreed point and time, and the tour will start. If you (or your group) are the only participants, you can propose the guide a particolar point and time.
Since the visit of Polignano takes about half a day, if you want to enrich your trip with the discovery of another unique local pearl, we recommend you to explore one of our tours to 2 locations, combining to the poetry of Monopoli with the magic of Alberobello, home of the famous characteristic stone buildings, the trulli, or Polignano, with its breathtaking view.
Costs (and inclusions)
The participation fee for a cultural (walking) tour is € 30 per person and includes the activity of the tour guide,while it doesn’t include meals or anything else.
Some community organizers may indicate slightly different prices depending on the services offered.
Duration and Period
The guided tours of Monopoli have a duration of about 2-3 hours, and almost all the organizers leave freedom of choice on the departure time. Available all year round.
Tours generally start with groups of 2 to 25 participants, but many organizers are flexible and also start with one person, or with groups larger than 25. On tours where you visit only one city, you meet directly on site: the organizer will indicate the meeting point immediately after booking, often agreeing this point with the guest.
Alternatively, if you choose a two-stage day tour (check tours of 2 locations), we suggest to enrich the day tour with a visit to teh fabulous villages of Polignano or Alberobello. Our organizers are available to offer – often free of charge – a ride by car (in the case of a few people) or to organize transport by bus or minibus (in case of groups).
