A historical, white-washed Italian town, known for its crystal clear waters, white pebble beaches, limestone cliffs and cave grottoes with breath-taking views.
The beautiful beach resort town of Polignano a Mare, lays perched on a high and jagged coastline in Apulia in the Province of Bari, in southern Italy overlooking the Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most romantic spots in the region, with several caves along its limestone cliffs.
Polignano a Mare is home of the impressive Abbazia di San Vito church and the Palazzese restaurant, carved out of limestone rocks and overlooking the blue-green Adriatic. The town has a maze of narrow white-washed streets, museums, cathedrals, restaurants, pizzeria, wine bar, night clubs, cafes and shops selling traditional and unique craft goods.
In the city centre, is the popular, white-pebble Cala Porto beach, nestled between tall sandstone walls, in Lama Monachile bay, bordered by a Roman bridge. On the waterfront is a dedicated statue of the great Italian singer, musician and actor, Domenico Modugno, who wrote and sang numerous classic songs, including the international hit, ‘Volare’.
Cliff diving is one of many things Polignano a Mare is famous for and every year, the city host the famous cliff-diving competitions, organised by Red Bull, which attracts thousands of thrill-seeking crowds.
