What Can You Do And What Will You See in the Town of Monopoli?

The small town of Monopoli in the province of Bari, Italy is a flourishing seaside town that was once subject to pirate raids many years ago because of its location as a trading centre.

Now, it has become quite the tourist spot, with plenty of attractions to see and explore, from the port to the historic core and the sea.

The Museo della Cattedrale has many examples of ecclesiastical art for you to feast your eyes on. You can also check out Santa Maria Amalfitana, a chapel built in the 12th Century that has stood the test of time. Then there are the ruins of the ancient city of Egnazia, which used to be a Messapanic trading center in the 5th Century and had 2 kilometers of defensive walls to protect it from attacking pirates. The Greeks and then the Romans would later colonize the town, building a forum, a public hall, and an amphitheater, the ruins of which you can still visit today.

For more information about other local tourists spots or just live in the small town in general, you can go to the local tourist office, the Pro Loco, which is open every day from June to September from 10 am to 1 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm.

Unfortunately, you'll find no trains going from Alberobello to Monopoli. You can, however, ride a bus from Alberobello to Monopoli. It departs three times a day at 6:30 am, 3:30 pm, and 7:30 pm. The entire trip will take you no longer than an hour.
