Polignano a Mare

The amazing rocky terrace on the Adriatic Sea

 

Perched on a high rocky outcrop that reaches into the Adriatic Sea, Polignano is a destination not to be missed on a trip to Puglia.

The best way to experience the atmosphere of this Mediterranean city is through a nice walk on its terraces overlooking the sea. With its picturesque bays and hidden caves, Polignano was an ancient landing spot for merchants and fishermen. Today, its artisan shops and stylish bars are busy year round.

Polignano is also known for its high-quality ice creams which renamed it “the city of gelato” and for being the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, the singer of the worldwide famous song “volare”.
