Noli has lots of charm, makes a great day trip and is a good place to base yourself for a holiday.

Huddled under craggy Monte Ursino, Noli is a picturesque, miniature, walled town, which is one of the best-preserved medieval cities on this stretch of the coast. Just 4m above sea level, Noli sits quite literally on the beach. There is a small palm-fringed promenade and a good little public beach with rough sand. Pulled up on the sand are rows of little boats belonging to the local fishermen, who set out every night to gather their catch. Noli has lots of charm, makes a great day trip and is a good place to base yourself for a holiday.
