Monopoli's a fairly unassuming coastal town. It doesn't tend to feature on must-see guides to Puglia or have any great claim to fame, but to those of you of romantic disposition, none of that will matter. Head into the centro storico (old town) and you will find high walls complete with historic cannons, cosy restaurants, a sandy beach and any number of corners that when turned will yield the surprise of an incredible ancient building. Yes, this is where my new Italian home is and I love it!
Wander the intimate winding cobbled streets, take in the beautiful architecture and the sound of the sea and let your troubles melt away...
