After Firenze we flew to Bari to get to the region of Puglia. We were staying in a small sea-side village called Monopoli.
Jess & her mum came to this town in 2013 & both fell in love with the place, so Jess was really excited to show Dylan one of her favourite places in the world!
As it was her favourite place & a good base to explore a few other areas of Puglia we decided to stay for a week (not long enough!). We also convinced our friend Ivan to pop down & join us on the Italian coastline for a few days.
Monopoli is like the Italian Rivera but not as touristy & a lot more relaxed, not to mention cheaper! It is a beautiful town with sand beaches & amazing coastlines. To sum up our days we ate gelato every day, sipped the BEST Italian wine, Had the most amazing food & went for swims multiple times a day, naturally Dylan fell in love with the place!
