Poliginano e Mare is easy to reach by Trenitalia trains from Bari. Don't visit on a Sunday as the trains do not begin until 10.05am. This means you will be there with a lot of tourists and local holiday makers. Weekdays are the quietest. Polignano...More

quaint and relaxed, perched on the cliffs overlooking the Adriatic with lots of walking streets leading here and there and numerous cafes to choose from. Charming town and worthy of a visit, tho parking is tricky near centre ville. We were here in early October...More

Beautiful little seaside town with a relaxed vibe, scenic views, some nice laid back restaurants and bars, and boutique shops selling local crafts and produce, particularly ceramiche pugliese. We only planned on a flying visit before heading to Monopoli, but decided to stay for the...More

Been coming to Puglia for the last 10+ years and while some might argue Polignano a Mare is overhyped, I’d definitely say it is worth a day trip to. It’s very pretty, amazing views out to the Adriatic Sea, lots of little streets to wander,...More

Perfect for diving. Not great beach. Photographs well but too crowded and the worst to walk on. Large rocks to gravel. Slippery and uneven. Lots of waking. Worth going if you also want to see Domenico Motugno statue. If you have lots of free time...More

Very romantic town by the sea. Although very crowded at times. I recommend taking a boat ride along the coast to see the splendid architecture of the cliff town

If I am to compare this with other cities in the proximity of Bari I wouldn't rate it as high. The old center is quite small, the beaches are very rocky and crowded so you should be prepared for that with special shoes. Otherwise you...More
