POLIGNANO A MARE
Visit Polignano A Mare
Enter through the Marchesale Arch into the historic city center and get lost in the alleys. You may find yourself on a balcony overlooking the sea, a small craft store, or a bar meeting people. Walk the Bourbon Bridge, take a dip in the clear waters of Lama Monachile, look for the statue of Domenico Modugno, and, if you love art, you can’t miss the Pino Pascali Museum of Contemporary Art with an incredible view of the sea. Embark on a guided boat tour to discover the village’s sea caves and enjoy an aperitif on board.
Visiting Savelletri and Fasano
If you are with your family, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit the Zoo Safari in Fasano, with an immersive experience among lions, zebras, giraffes, lemurs. It is the largest wildlife park in Italy with the largest number of species in Europe. If you are a history lover and want to learn about the ancient people who inhabited Puglia, you should discover Lama D’Antico and the Egnatia Archaeological Park. From the hills to the sea, Fasano is the most diverse location: you’ll love the centuries-old olive trees and beaches, the buildings in the old town and the countryside, and perhaps you’ll appreciate it even more with a bike tour!
Monopoli is dynamic and lively, but one can spend time lounging in front of the harbor watching the fishermen return with their catch and a few stories to tell. The waterfront leads you to the Charles V Castle, the alleys take you through a web of restaurants and pubs, the Murattian center persuades you to go shopping. Discover the coves with happy hours by the sea, get lost in the alleys and squares, take your time to experience the city not as tourists, but as locals.
Food and wine tours and visits to olive oil mills in Puglia
Don’t settle for the usual vacation: get involved in tourist itineraries ranging from visiting an Apulian winery to touring an olive oil mill to discover the true essence of Puglia, tasting wines, learning about olive varieties and the organoleptic properties of extra virgin olive oil. Discover Apulian masserias to learn about the activities of the area’s traditional farms, where fresh dairy products are made, where you can buy freshly picked vegetables or where bread, focaccia and taralli are kneaded then baked in ancient wood-fired ovens. You can take part in cooking classes so you can learn the best recipes and take a piece of Puglia, the most delicious, home with you. On the coast from Polignano a Mare to Savelletri, there are dozens of options for eating seafood on the rocks, in lidos, in chic restaurants: go in search of your ideal spot!
Visiting the surroundings
Discover the wonders of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, by visiting the famous trulli and strolling through the town’s picturesque streets. Stop in the small villages with narrow, whitewashed alleys of the Itria Valley such as Cisternino, Locorotondo and Ostuni and immerse yourself in the slow-paced life of Puglia. You cannot miss a visit to Bari, the capital of Puglia, with its wonderful theaters such as the Margherita Theater that seems to rest on the sea, and the Basilica of San Nicola. On the other side of Apulia, in Salento, we recommend visiting Lecce, the Signora del Barocco.
