Worth every penny. Would totally recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the history and culture of Monopoli. Plenty of insight into town and country life (with the odd pear, olive and almond plucked from the trees lining the route). What a super guide Rocco was. He knew the region, knew the people and knew the history back to front.

Super recomendado: vale a pena! Rocco é um excelente guia sob os mais variados aspectos. É nítido que conhece muito bem a região, a história e as pessoas. Seu carisma e bom humor tornaram tudo ainda mais agradável. Inglês não é nossa língua nativa e pudemos compreender perfeitamente o que foi falado. A pedalada não é difícil e as paradas frequentes tornaram o passeio bastante tranquilo mesmo para mim que tenho estado sedentário. Ao longo do lindo caminho de bicicleta pela zona rural de Monopoli pudemos ver o que é cultivado na região, degustar frutas e castanhas retiradas das plantas e visitar locais de relevância histórica para a região. Isso tudo sempre acompanhado das devidas explicações, abordando história, importância, curiosidades e dicas sobre o que víamos. Mesmo as perguntas de aprofundamento ou sobre outros tópicos eram bem respondidas por ele. Para finalizar o ótimo passeio, degustamos um excelente gelato da região.
