The space

Monopoli is the southern port of the Bari area. After the destruction of Egnathia, an ancient city of Messapi in strong connection with the greeks, its inhabitants fled to Monopoli, from which it derives its name as only (monos) city (polis). For centuries it has been one of the most important harbor in Apulia, even though for its strategic position was usually attacked by Barbary corsairs.

Since the XI century it hosts the bishop's diocese, and in the XV century it came under the Venetian control becoming one of the most important seaports on the Adriatic Sea as a base between Bari and Brindisi. The city saw also the Spanish domination: in this period the Aragonese transformed radically the historical center building a castel and improving the defensive system as you can see even nowadays.

Monopoli is today one of the most appreciated touristic destination because of its history and the beauty of the coast: a constellation of tiny creeks and sandy beaches. Also the nightlife with pubs and clubs along the seaside is well appreciated.

The city hosts many touristic attraction like: the Charles V Castel, The Gerosolomitano Hospital (1350), the S. Jacob Hospital, Palmieri Palace, the Comunal Biblioteque, the Sant Stephen abbey, the reinassance city walls.

Among the churces it worth a visit the Cathedral which is a Baroque architecture, the S. Maria Amalfitana Basilica, a rare piece of Romanic architecture, the SS. Apostoli Pietro e Paolo church with its paleocristian architecture.

We would suggest also a visit of the near towns like Polignano a Mare (the Mr. Volare city) with its high cliffs overlooking the sea, Castellana Grotte with the famous caves and Alberobello, the Unesco city. Among art and history you might also have a visit to the Fasano’s Zoosafari which can be the best choice for childrens and adults…

Our trip to Monopoli was amazing! The Airbnb was located in a really cute area that was close to restaurants, shops, and the beach. Our only complaint would be that it is really noisy at night on the weekends and Sunday morning. Throughout the week, the night life is still incred…

What a fantastic place to stay! We love Maria and her husband. They have wonderful taste. The home is lovely. They were very easy to communicate with and made us feel like we were in great hands. Monopoli is magical. We would love to visit again and highly recommend Maria's home.

We absolutely loved our stay at Maria's apartment. The place is perfectly located, and very charming. We traveled by car and easily found free parking in the neighborhood. We were very well welcomed and immediately felt at home. We'll definitely be back!
