Monopoli In 35 Photos – A ‘Dreamlike’ Town Of Southern Italy

The moment I framed Monopoli from the beach of Cala Porta Vecchia, I knew it had a dreamlike quality. The old buildings along with the seacoast looked almost like a painting. My feeling of awe and wonder continued to grow as I walked towards the sublime dock followed by the fascinating back lanes of the buildings.

Well, let these photos bring Monopoli to you –

Did you notice the shades of blue?
Don't you think that the harbour blends beautifully with the Castle of Charles V (a 15th century building)?
Don't they look story-bookish?
The clock tower of Monopoli
Aren't these doors and windows pretty?
The main square of Monopoli

Have my photos tempted you to visit Monopoly?

  10. Now THIS is more like it! It looks much more rustic and picturesque and characterful than Bari. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

    1. Yep, absolutely! That is why Bari didn't appeal to me. I'd any day like a Monopoli or a Ostuni as a traveler.
