The Tour of Polignano a Mare
The tour of Polignano begins in the waterfront area, just in front of the statue of Domenico Modugno, the famous Italian singer-songwriter. In fact, Polignano a Mare is the city that in 1928, gave birth to the author of the song Volare, famous all over the world.
The tour continues with a guided walk through the alleys of the historic center, between historic sites and breathtaking views created by the many terraces overlooking the sea.
You will be enthralled by the terraced cliffs of Polignano. The walls, doors and stairs of the historic center of Polignano a Mare are impregnated with poems and poetic aphorisms painted by a Barese transplanted in Polignano who signs “Guido, the Flaneur”.
Another attraction that you can see during the tour of the historic center is La Casa dell’Orologio, a structure that in medieval times housed the university. The particularity of this building is due to the fact that even today, the clock is wound manually by the owner of the house.
At the end of this guided walk, you can taste the local specialty. Polignanese coffee is a mix of coffee, sugar, lemon peel, cream and amaretto- a harmonious combination that is usually served warm in small glasses.
