Lots of white stone, narrow winding streets, and authentic. Fun just to wander around. I suspect it's a different place during tourist season however, based on the closed "touristy" stores.

This white city is a very calm and cozy place. Extremely authentic and clean at the same time. And the people are very nice :)

We were here for some cooler October days and had both sun and rain. The old town part of Ostuni is a delight in both types of weather!
