Polignano a Mare, a wonderful town in the south-east of Bari hidden like a pearl into its jagged cliffs and caressed by the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic sea, is becoming the favorite destination for Italians and foreigners travelers. Hometown of Domenico Modugno and the one Italian stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving, recently it turned from a fishing village into a worldwide attraction.
Polignano a Mare is amazing for its breathtaking beauty and the balconies overhanging to the sea, but above all for the welcome given to the thousands tourists who visit it. And its innovative services make it dynamic and cool.
But what can you really do in Polignano?
First of all we advice you to leave your car in the suburbs parking and go by walk to the center. Aren’t you sportsmen? Don’t worry, book a very special taxi, the "Ape Calessino" or the “Rickshaw”, the funniest way to get around the town, and if you tell about it to your friends ... what envy!
In the streets of the old town, we suggest you the funny Rickshaw experience, through narrow alleys and balconies overhanging to the sea. From Hermit Island to Domenico Modugno’s statue, we will tell you stories and anecdotes about places, people and traditions of the town.
Do you want to make a trip back to the past? Take our “Ape Calessino” and visit the most far places of the town. You will admire the 15 km of our amazing coastline or you will go along the old countryside streets through dry-stone walls, rural churches and old farmhouses in which you can taste local products and wine; and if you want to dive in history and art, you can’t miss the visit of Conversano with its Norman Castle, the Benedictine Monastery and the Archaeological Museum.
Do you love adventure and exploration? Saddle up our bikes and we will guide you through dirt and bike-friendly trails to discover the territory of Polignano. It is the slowest and most sustainable way to know our land!
Looking Polignano from the sea is certainly one of the emotions you will never forget. By boat a good captain will take you along the breathtaking coastline. You’ll get lost in the beauty of its sea caves, full of charm and mystery, swimming in our shining water. This is an experience to live also in the night, when the light shows paint a very romantic atmosphere.
Get ready to wear an apron and begin a funny educational class to learn the secrets of the Apulian cuisine. Why don’t you come and know the special art of “Orecchiette” that our grandmothers passed down for generations? And how about starting a trip to discover the Apulian wine traditions and our olive trees? You cannot miss it ...
And at the end of an eventful day, what's better than a massage and relaxing time?
