"Capitolo Vacation Town" Monopoli by Ewingjr98

Monopoli Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 45 photos

I lived in Capitolo during the summer of 1999. It is a pretty cool little seaside vacation resort with numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs. To the north and south, are plenty of beautiful sandy beaches (topless!) nestled between rocky cliffs along side the Adriatic Sea.

South of town you can find Roman ruins along the water's edge. The the north is the larger town of Bari, only 30 minutes away. Thirty minutes west, over the mountains is Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its stone "trulli" houses. Further west, on the other coast, sit the amazing Pompeii ruins.

    The Roman ruins at Egnazia, beaches, and Alberobello are beautiful Joe. I enjoyed the tour and your tips are excellent!

    I was searching your sites and came across this wonderful spot. The safari zoo sounds adventuresome. Great comments/pictures. Look at the VT reference for Capitolo-it is shown as near Trieste in the north and I know you did not want that point on the map.
