Monopoli Countryside Bike Tour
Bike tour among grotto churches, old oil mills, fortified large farms and thousand-old olive trees
We will start from via Porto, in Monopoli old town, where we will take you to discover medieval villages excavated into the rock and fortified large farms – “masserie”.
We visit authentic places, still working farms, where it is still possible to live the authentic Apulian atmosphere. We will take country routes with old dry-stone walls, wonderful olive trees and without any traffic. During our bike tour we stop several times, first at Porto Ghiacciolo, the picturesque beach near the Saint Stephan castle, one of the most charming places on the Monopoli coast.
We will visit also a grotto church with frescoes made during the Middle Age, a fascinating oil mill excavated inside the rock from XIII century and an authentic farm surrounded by more than two thousand old olive trees. A relaxing cycling tour in Monopoli countryside among centuries-old olive and carob trees, fig and almond trees, prickly pear plants and at the end we enjoy tasting typical Apulian products.
