About This Experience

This morning your local guide will take you on a walk through one of Puglia's oldest and most important cities: Monopoli. Inhabited since 500 B.C., this white-washed port city is full of secrets you likely wouldn't discover on your own that will make your visit more meaningful.

At the end of your tour, you'll stop to meet a dear friend, Gianni, who has spent his life in Monopoli and carries a heartwarming passion for his village. Gianni will accompany you to his art studio in the historic center to show you his life's work and passion. Part painter, part poet, Gianni's work centers around his life at sea as a fisherman and overarching themes of love and existential questions.
