The coast of Polignano is one of the most beautiful in Puglia. 30 minutes from Bari, it has a jagged coastline with very steep slopes. It is a town on Italy’s southern Adriatic coast. It’s known for beaches like the white-pebble Lama Monachile beach, also known as Cala Porto, which is bordered by a Roman bridge. It is a breath taking sight. Walking past the Borbonic bridge, you can find the statue of Domenico Modugno – famous for the song: Volare! He was born in Polignano –sing along as you pass by. Then there is the Ponte dei Lapilli - a cove nestled at the bottom of a cliff. Overlooking the sea, San Vito Abbey has a Romanesque church and a 16th-century tower. Its historic city center reflects the Arab, Byzantine, Spanish and Norman cultures. Don’t forget the Matrice Church from the 13th century and the "Pino Pascali" Museum. Finally, THE place to visit is of course the Terre Di San Vito farm. You can book this on our website. It is a two hour wine tasting experience that beats all other winery experiences – see the information on this website
