Lost in translation

We love this little town by the sea. You can walk everywhere. The buildings in old town date from 12th century. People are friendly, food is great, having had the best puzza yet, and accomodation was right on the water. A true Italian experience without any tourist rush.

Quintessential Italian Harbor Town
Aug 2016 • Friends
So, if you ask Italians, they'll ask 'why are you going to Molfetta?!' with an incredulous look ok their face. Even if they're from there! We went with my husbands parents, and his mother's parents are from Molfettla (which was the first stop in a 'this is where you came from tour' of Italy.) I didn't go with any expectations, I just wanted sunshine! I was very pleasantly surprised! Granted, there isn't a whole lot to see as far as well known tourist areas, and it is a little harbor town compared to some. But I think that's what made it so nice. I loved the whitewashed buildings with the green shutters. It made the place very picturesque. The little streets are easy to get lost in and easy enough to find your way out. The central church is a stunner! And the harbor itself is very beautiful. Lovely to spend an evening strolling along and looking at the fresh catch from the fishing boats at the end of the day. The locals sit outside in the evening and catch up with each other while little ones run around.
The only downside, but I wouldn't mark a star off for it, is the beach. It really isn't one. It's just a small patch of sand behind a retaining wall. The water didn't seem bad, but didn't seem that all clear. The locals swim anyway, and you can jump off the rocks. There's a wall where you can walk or lay out and look at the ocean beyond. If you want a beach, you're better off somewhere else, buy Molfetta is a lovely place to spend a few days and unwind. We were 4 days there and drove to a few other places, so it's a good base point, but make sure to spend some time there, walking around, eating fresh seafood.....

The Italian lifestyle
Sep 2016 • Family
We stayed in molfetta in September for 3 weeks , it's a quiet little fishing town that oozes the Italian lifestyle. It's very cheap to go out and eat & drink in molfetta, from amazing seafood dishes from 12 euro to 4 euro cocktails. We loved that it wasn't very touristy therefore we were immersed in the real Italian lifestyle , from afternoon siesta's to late dinners, fresh food and friendly people . Just outside of Bari for a relaxing and cultural stay

Quaint Old Town
Sep 2016 • Couples
Stayed here as we were flying home late the next day, it's close to the airport and we found a room with a balcony overlooking the port.
Its a lot bigger than I thought and has a long shopping street.
The old town is typical of the area and the place feels laid back without loads of tourists.
There were not many restaurants that served sea food, maybe we were looking in the wrong places. We did see a couple though. This is a real working town rather than a tourist trap so maybe thats why. Definately worth a visit though.
Free parking in places around the port too.

Mysterious origins lead to unspoilt beaches and wonderful colours of Puglia
Oct 2014 • Couples
Its mysterious origins, given the Neolithic settlement uncovered hereabouts, provided the necessary hook to grab our interest. Add to this a lovely Walled medieval town with a splendid Romanesque cathedral and we "are in like Flynn".
The port offers a harmony of low structures geometrically contrasting with the blue, blue of the sparkling waters and the static boat life. But it is the striking deep blue of the Mediterranean sky that contrasts stunningly with the charming, whitewashed walls of the beautiful town.
We love the historical centre, from which one spies the olive groves up the hills making this a paradise close to a series of dazzling, unspoilt beaches.

if you visit Puglia you MUST not miss Molfetta. The ancient town is amazing, the sea is a diamond, the people is very friendly. Visit it or you'll regret all life long!
