Polignano a Mare, birthplace of Domenico Modugno, surrounded by the “blu dipinto di blu”; the crystalline sea and the carved rock are the hallmarks of this wonderful city, known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic". Visit to the old town, full of Arab, Byzantine, Spanish and Norman traces, like the remains of the four defensive towers that surrounded the ancient part of the village. From the “Arco della Porta”, formerly the only access to the village, we enter the enchanting town, enriched by the thirteenth-century Matrice Church dedicated to the “Assunta” vergin Mary, and by the balconies overlooking the sea.
The jagged coastline gives rise to the Marine Caves including the well-known Grotta Palazzese and the high cliff of Lama Monachile. At the end of the walk, a moment of pleasure awaits you: enjoy an exceptional homemade ice cream or try the popular “Caffè Speciale", an excellent typical coffee invented in Polignano.
Polignano is not just a charming town by the sea, it is also a land to explore thanks to its flavours, traditions and the taste of its products.
That is why an appetizer on the terrace overlooking the sea in the heart of the old town will be unforgettable. You will taste freshly prepared delicacies, made with quality food such as raw fish, tartare, “bruschetta” (crispy bread) seasoned with extra virgin olive oil in various ways, served with a glass of intense Apulian wine.
*The appetizer in Polignano a Mare is optional. Possibility to have lunch or dinner in the same location.
