Polignano a Mare is perched up on high limestone cliffs above the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. This town was a perfect day trip for us from our base in Puglia at the Borgo Egnazia in Fasano di Savelletri about 25 minutes away....More

What sets the centro storico of Polignano a Mare apart is its location on the Adriatic Sea. The centro storico itself is small and picturesque. What makes it unique, though, is the breathtaking views of the cliffs and caves overlooking the sea. In my opinion,...More

Beautiful walk in the old City, great view of the small beach where the locals come for lunch and a cosy and intimate atmosphere. I recommend this tour for a couple of relaxing hours.

We wandered through these narrow streets and glancing into one doorway, festooned with black drapery ( I should have realized the implication!) saw an open coffin with all the mourners gathered round in the kitchen. Felt terrible about intruding in such a private moment even...More

If you get to Puglia this small city is a must visit. The views are wonderful and it's not as crowded as Alberobello.

You can find some free parking lots in the residential area, right after entering the town from the highway. Last 1km you could better walk then try to manoeuvre in very narrow street in hopeless search for parking.

It' s easy, the main entrance to the town goes forward to a parking, there are carabinieris guiding the tourists to the parking. And then, a little walk and you are just there.

There is quite a large car park on Via Rocco Giuliani. Then a short stroll up Via Tritone to get to the old city. There is a network of one-way streets to navigate. Easiest is to go down Via Pompeo Sarnelli, turn right into... More
