Polignano a Mare
Polignano a Mare is a charming little town that is the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, a famous Italian singer! Our visit begins at the statue of the celebrated singer-songwriter. Its alleys are rich in history and poetry and lead to terraces overlooking the sea with breathtaking views.
The oldest part of the town of Polignano stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Adriatic Sea 33 kilometres south of Bari.
The main tourist attractions are its sea caves such as Grotta delle Rondinelle, Grottone, Grotta Palazzese and Grotta Ardito. The pretty historical centre is home to the splendid Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta where a valuable nativity scene by the author Stefano da Putignano is housed. Since 2008, the town of Polignano a Mare has always received the Blue Flag, an award given by the Foundation for Environmental Education to European coastal resorts that meet quality criteria for bathing water and services offered in the tourism sector.
Our idea is to combine an itinerary of your choice with the possibility of tasting some of the area’s gastronomic excellences through our original Percorsi Golosi and Eno-Percorsi.
