Polignano a Mare in Puglia, Italy

Published Date Author: , June 11th, 2014

Polignano a Mare, Italy - Carlos MeliaOne of the many stops during my recent visit to the region of Puglia, in the south of Italy, was the charming and worldwide known Polignano a Mare. Famous for being Dominco Modugno’s (Italian singer, songwriter, actor) hometown, Polignano a Mare rises on a rock overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

Only 20 minutes away from Bari. Always important meeting point for tourists, it is also the idilic and ultra romantic spot for celebrities, to tie the knot, like recently Japanese superstar Utada Hikaru. The buildings and churches architecture, shows the influence of the Arabs, the Byzantines, the Spanish and the Normans.

Inlets, caves, crystal clear sea, evocative see bottoms make it one of the most visited destinations in the province of Bari and Puglia in general. This fascinating medieval village is perched on a hight and jagged coastline, where there are many caves.

In the centre of Polignano a Mare, there is a succession of narrow streets with typical white houses and terraces overlooking the sea. I was told that some of the best Gelato in Puglia, can be found in Polignano, so I went in search for it. Do not be fooled, most guides recommend Mago del Gelo, between us a true tourist trap. Go to Caruzo and try the Riso, Miele and Cardamomo gelato. More on my week exploring Puglia coming.
